Winners of new industry awards recognising the 10 best businesses in construction, as voted by the sector’s role models, were announced on the opening day of UK Construction Week (8 October 2019).
The UKCW Construction Awards celebrate innovation and excellence among a range of large and small contractors, architects, clients, suppliers and manufacturers serving the industry.
The winners were announced by architect George Clarke at the UK’s largest construction event, which is now in its fifth year.
Nathan Garnett, event director at UK Construction Week, commented: “We have wanted to host these awards for some time, but this year it was made possible by our industry Role Models who gave us their very honest and forthright views on who should receive these accolades.
“The businesses chosen as winners from a shortlist of more than 60 companies have convinced the toughest of judges – the people who are part of their delivery partners or supply chains, and the people who are inspiring others to join the construction industry.
“So it is great to be able to recognise the excellence we see all around us in this sector, and the businesses who are forging ahead on innovation despite the climate of uncertainty that is affecting construction so badly. They are beacons of light for the whole sector.”
UKCW is one event with many sections, including Build sponsored by Easy-Trim, Building Tech, Civils, Energy and HVAC, Surface and Materials, and Timber. It also features Grand Designs Live (9-10 October only). Single registration gives free access to all areas of the show.
