Time is running out to enter the ninth Constructing Excellence in the North East awards, which celebrate leading lights from the region’s building industry.

Entries to the awards close on Friday, with a ceremony held on Friday May 10 at the Newcastle Marriot Gosforth Park Hotel.

There are 14 categories for individuals or companies to enter which include awards for collaborative working, innovation and sustainability as well as individual and project of the year.

The winner of each category will go on to compete in the National Constructing Excellence Awards, held in London in the Autumn.

Last year’s integration and collaborative working award winner, Laing O’Rourke, which was recognised regionally for the work it did with Northumberland, Tyne and Wear NHS Foundation Trust went on to win at the national Constructing Excellence awards at the end of last year.

Regional director Dan Doherty said: “Receiving the regional award was a proud moment for the whole team, recognising that trust and partnership working had added real value to the end-user experience at Ferndene.

"We were delighted that the project went on to win at the national awards, showcasing on a larger platform what is achievable when the client, delivery partner and supply chain focus on the best possible outcomes for patients.”

This year will see Constructing Excellence in the North East celebrate ten years as the North East’s regional partner to the national body Constructing Excellence

Entries for the awards close at 5.00pm on Friday. More info available here:
