About the Client of the Year Award

Celebrating those who commission the most impactful construction projects

Our Client of the Year Award recognises organisations that have led the commissioning of construction projects. It celebrates the impact which those commissioning projects have had or will have on improving the lives of all those who interact with the built environment.

Collaborative working, risk management, embracing the use of digital technologies and promoting equal opportunities are just some of the factors considered by the judges.
