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.


These awards really do bring out the best in everyone. Because that is what they are about – the best. The people in our industry who are making the biggest difference.

This evening we are lucky enough to hear the stories that have got our finalists here. That road to the final involves many people, colleagues, friends and often family members too.

It is also against the backdrop of an often-volatile economic environment, with peaks and troughs in supply, complex problems to solve and a world in desperate need of sustainable solutions from the built environment. As the global construction industry becomes more interlinked, so nationally and locally we feel the repercussions of world events and crisis we are living through more acutely.

Yet tonight we will hear that our finalists rose to the challenge, setting new benchmarks and showing us a future that reimagines what is possible.

There are few industries that have the level of impact on the lives of people that we do. We belong to an industry that connects people to each other; we build and rebuild communities as much as we build economies, creating homes, hospitals, workplaces and schools. Throughout tonight we will see many examples that highlight how challenging and creative this great industry is.

Our awards are not standing still and this year we have incorporated some new additions, judged to our exacting standards. Last year we added to our popular Construction Manager of the Year category, with awards that supported Rising Stars, Clients and celebrated entire Teams. This year we have added awards that recognise and celebrate those individuals and companies that make our industry more equal, diverse and inclusive, and I am also delighted to see the introduction of our first Sustainability award.

My message to the finalists is to remember what a fantastic achievement it is to reach the final. No matter what happens. One which will remain with you throughout your career and for which you can be justifiably proud. We are.

Wishing you all a great evening.
