About the awards

The CE West Midlands Awards 2024 Shortlist has now been announced CLICK HERE TO VIEW

Interviews – 26th Feb – 1st March 2024

Our awards are recognised across the West Midlands built environment as the biggest and brightest celebration of best practice. They are a clear demonstration of the core strength of construction in the West Midlands and the desire and commitment to deliver buildings, housing, infrastructure, and facilities of all kinds in a collaborative and sustainable manner.

Our awards are open to all organisations and project teams involved in delivering buildings and civil engineering projects in the West Midlands. Entries are welcomed from developers, clients, contractors, specialist and sub-contractors, engineers, of all disciplines, members of the design team and other consultants. The key factor is that the project, scheme, process or philosophy contributes to the West Midlands built environment and can be celebrated as an example of best practice

The Awards Dinner will be held on Thursday 2nd May at Edgbaston, Birmingham
This year the CE Midlands Awards are supporting ‘Children with Cancer’ who play a vital role in funding ground-breaking research into understanding – and ultimately conquering – childhood cancers. With 12 children a day currently facing that bleak diagnosis, the charity are committed to realising a world where every child survives cancer. Founded in 1988 by the O’Gorman family, who lost two children to cancer, they have huge ambitions not only to raise their profile but also to maximise fundraising capacity in what is their 35thanniversary year this year.

Being recognised by your peers for excellence in construction will bring enormous benefits to your business, helping you to attract new clients cement existing relationships and raise your staff morale.

Award Categories

Building Project of the Year Award

The Project of the Year category celebrates inspirational projects that deliver outstanding outcomes. We are looking for projects that exemplify the Constructing Excellence principles, which fully align with the collaborative work we are undertaking with the Construction Leadership Council. Projects must demonstrate the successful implementation of better ways of working and so help to provide a template for others to learn from.

Client of the Year Award

Construction clients have an important role to play in transforming the way the industry operates. How and when projects come to market significantly impacts the ability of the construction industry to provide innovative, whole life value-for-money solutions. We are looking for a construction client that has been actively involved in delivering the construction programme and developed strategies for encouraging and rewarding excellence. It goes without saying we expect a culture of collaboration and transparency to be at the heart of how the client operates and empowers the wider team.

G4C Future Leader Award

Generation 4 Change (G4C) is the young professional voice of the UK built environment industry and a driving force for change. The Future Leader Award celebrates the younger generation of construction and seeks to showcase the hard work and leadership of these up-and-coming professionals. This should be a person with less than ten years of experience in the industry (typically less than 30 years of age).

Regeneration & Retrofit Award

The Regeneration and Retrofit Award aims to highlight projects or programmes that apply the Constructing Excellence principles to deliver better outcomes for an existing asset, which may include historic/heritage sites. These principles include procurement, innovation, collaboration, culture/people, productivity, client satisfaction, HS&W and Digital. Applicants must demonstrate how they achieve improved outcomes against these principles.

Infrastructure Project of the Year Award

The Project of the Year category celebrates inspirational projects that deliver outstanding outcomes. We are looking for projects that exemplify the Constructing Excellence principles, which fully align with the collaborative work we are undertaking with the Construction Leadership Council. Projects should demonstrate the successful implementation of better ways of working and so help to provide a template for others to learn from.

ESG Award

The Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) Award aims to celebrate social, economic and environmental sustainability. We are looking for organisations or projects that demonstrate the greatest environmental and social impact or approach to generating such. Applicants must also exemplify effective governance structures and practices.

Innovation Award

Innovation more than invention is critical to every sector to deliver outstanding results, break through productivity barriers and address our customers, communities and global needs. Our sector solves problems every day, yet rarely are we systemic in our organisations and projects to drive and embed a culture for innovation in our teams or our supply chain partners. Successful applicants will demonstrate how they foster a culture for innovation and systematically solve quantified problems with new or repurposed tools and techniques used by other sectors or organisations - to deliver quantified better productivity, profitability, sustainability or any other critical element with the use of an innovative product or approach that can/will be repeatedly used within the organisation or wider sector.

Integration and Collborative Working Award

Integration and collaborative working are key to overcoming challenges, managing risk and delivering better outcomes. We are looking for projects and practices that exemplify this approach with evidence of how all parties have been engaged, from clients to contractors and all across the supply chain. Applicants must demonstrate the benefits that have been achieved through a collaborative and integrated working.

SME of the Year Award

The UK government definition of Small to Medium Enterprises encompasses; micro (less than 10 employees and an annual turnover under €2 million), small (less than 50 employees and an annual turnover under €10 million) and medium-sized (less than 250 employees and an annual turnover under €50 million) businesses. SMEs are a core part of the supply chain and are the backbone of the construction industry. Constructing Excellence are seeking to showcase examples of organisations that embody best practise. Applicants should model the Constructing Excellence principles of procurement, innovation, collaboration, culture/people, productivity, client satisfaction, HS&W, Digital.

Climate Action Award

High environmental and climate performance in construction aims to meet present day needs for housing, working environments and infrastructure without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs in times to come. It seeks to limit impact on the natural environment and demonstrate whole life sustainability. It is most effective when organisational culture, high design quality, technical innovation and transferability are abundant.

Residential Property of the Year

The Project of the Year category celebrates inspirational projects that deliver outstanding outcomes. We are looking for projects that exemplify the Constructing Excellence principles, which fully align with the collaborative work we are undertaking with the Construction Leadership Council. Projects must demonstrate the successful implementation of better ways of working and so help to provide a template for others to learn from.

People and Culture Award

“Our people are our greatest asset” - so attracting, motivating, supporting, developing and retaining the most diverse of human talent to our organisations and the sector is critical to ensure we totally understand and meet our customers' and wider communities’ needs. Strong constructive cultures, effective leadership, health & wellbeing, and psychological safety at every level are vital to ensuring we positively challenge and continuously improve, as is Equality, Diversity & Inclusion and ensuring functional competence through progression pathways and continuing professional development.

Delivering Value Award

Construction and the built environment play a huge role in underpinning our society and economy. To unlock better societal outcomes, we need to take an informed view of value and not simply make decisions based on cost. Clients need to work with their stakeholders to consider how to unlock wider benefits throughout the construction project and the lifetime of the asset. Tools such as the Value Toolkit enable clients and design teams to take a more informed view of value across four capitals - Produced, Natural, Social and Human. Whilst value can mean something different to everyone, what it shouldn’t be is solely focused on cost. We are seeking projects that clearly demonstrate value-based decision making and the benefits in can bring.
