National Constructing Excellence Awards


Legacy Award Winner - Green Cornwall

Construction in the south west was given a real boost when two of our landmark schemes were awarded top ranking at the National Constructing Excellence Awards 2014, this year sponsored by The NBS.

It is a great night for the whole industry, not just the Constructing Excellence movement, and it is a chance to celebrate the significant positive change across construction driven by the commitment of stakeholders up and down the supply chain. This year over 400 construction professionals gathered at the Tower Hotel in London where the winners from our own CESW Awards, as well those from the other CE regions, were all hoping to win national recognition.

So it was thoroughly rewarding to see the Legacy Award with its total focus on sustainability won by Cornwall Council for the Green Cornwall project. This was particularly pleasing as it was recognition for the Council’s commitment to a county wide project implemented in very tough economic conditions. The South-West then went on to win a second award – this time the Value Award was won by Kier Construction Central and Gloucestershire County Council for the Maidenhill School Refurbishment. Both teams worked together to meet a very tough brief, delivering exceptional value with limited budget to provide children, parents, teachers the local community with a facility exceeding expectations and that everyone is justifiably proud of.

The turnout for the National Awards showed the support of the construction industry in seeking best practice, innovation and excellence to the highest standards. It was a joy to share in the success of those who have worked extremely hard in improving our industry for the future – right across the country.

Because the national awards event is a celebration of the best of the best the standard of entries is very high, so it is worth remembering that everyone in the room at the Tower Hotel is a winner. The South West has traditionally done well at the national event and this year was no exception – but to remind you of just how good we are in the South West please take the time to review the results from our own awards
