About CE Awards

Recognise the best ... Inspire the rest

The Constructing Excellence SECBE 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 14th year, the Constructing Excellence SECBE Awards 2020 identify exceptional winners. Our rigorous judging process, gala dinner and winner videos reflect the high quality, innovation and inspiration of all those involved.

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

Entering the Constructing Excellence SECBE Awards is particularly good for your business. This is what happens when you succeed as a finalist or winner:

  • the awards team widely promote your success
  • the judging panel of industry leaders will remember your entry
  • your prominence will rise on social media
  • you will be given wider opportunities to showcase your work
  • your customers will be reminded just how good you are
  • people will want to work for you
  • you will attract new customers and clients
