About CE Awards

Recognise the best ... Inspire the rest

The Constructing Excellence Awards are unique in their recognition of outstanding built environment companies and projects that have delivered improvements in all-round performance through collaborative working and a real desire to make a difference.

Totally inclusive, our construction awards are open to the whole sector from buildings to infrastructure, all parts of the supply and demand chain, all disciplines, professions and trades.

Returning for their 13th year, the Constructing Excellence SECBE Awards identify exceptional winners.  Our rigorous judging process, Gala Dinner and Awards Brochure reflect the high quality, innovation and inspiration of all those involved.

Constructing Excellence Awards are held throughout England and Wales and all winners from the London and South Awards are put forward for the National Awards held in November*.

Entering awards are good for your business:

  • Gain client and industry recognition by participating in an awards scheme recognised by influencers
  • Opportunity to personally present your work to a judging panel of industry leaders
  • Increased exposure - all finalists have an opportunity to showcase their work
  • Put you in the best possible position to win more work

Submissions must relate to activities in the London and South East; Greater London, Buckinghamshire, Berkshire, Hampshire, IOW, Kent, Oxfordshire, Surrey, Sussex.  Entries from CIOB members in Jersey and Guernsey and serviced by the Southampton Hub are also considered eligible.
