Awards & Recognition

Entering the CIOB Awards provides you with the opportunity for your skills and abilities to be recognised. These prestigious awards will be a springboard in your career unlike any other; many of our previous medal winners have gone on to work on iconic landmarks like Canary Wharf and The Shard.


Where It All Began

The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) launched the Construction Manager of the Year Awards (CMYA) back in 1978. These awards have been showcasing incredible talent and highlighting the abilities of Construction Managers across the UK every year. An in-depth judging process ensures that the calibre of winners is consistently high, and as a result, the awards have a reputation for identifying the future leaders in the construction industry.

Over time, new awards have been introduced; the Rising Star Award, the President’s Award, Client of the Year and Team of the Year. These have been combined with CMYA to create the CIOB Awards.
