Constructing Excellence Awards (Yorkshire & Humber) 2015

Constructing Excellence Awards (Yorkshire & Humber) 2015

Hundreds of industry professionals turn out to celebrate, recognise and reward the very best examples of construction excellence in the Yorkshire & Humber region.

Friday 17th July saw the culmination of six months meticulous planning by the Constructing Excellence team to present this year’s Constructing Excellence Yorkshire & Humber Awards 2015, and what a night it was.

Held at the National Railway Museum in York, this  event brought together over 350 industry professionals, representing a wide cross-section of the construction sector, in a spectacular celebration to recognise and reward the very best examples of construction excellence, achievement and best practice the regional built environment has been involved in over the last 12 months.

Gosschalks's Head of Construction Law, Matthew Fletcher handed out the Gosschalks Value award to Interserve Construction for their work as Principal Supply Chain Partner (PSCP) for the refurbishment of Huddersfield Royal Infirmary.

Speaking about the awards, Matthew comments:

"We are delighted to sponsor the CEYH awards for a second year as it provides the perfect opportunity to celebrate the industry's return to growth with the best people from our region's construction sector. 

"They're not only outstanding at what they do for a living but they're also a great bunch of people to spend the evening with - one of the most enjoyable awards events in the calendar."

You can view the full list of award winners and highly commended runners-up here.  However, the real winner on the evening was the industry itself.

The sheer breadth of shortlisted projects, schemes & organisations represented at this year’s awards demonstrate once again that our regional construction sector continues to push boundaries & lead the way in driving up industry standards and “doing things better”.

Innovation and creativity shone through all the projects entered, with many underpinned by Construction 2025 core themes and vision. Collaboration was also a key theme of the evening with many of the shortlisted projects being undertaken in partnership demonstrating that we really are “stronger together”.

The future of the industry also looks to be in good hands with an inspiring presentation delivered by three students from St Ambrose Barlow High School with big plans for their careers in the construction industry.

Constructing Excellence Yorkshire and Humber (CEYH) delivers an outstanding programme of events to construction professionals within our region throughout the year.

Delivered via the Centre for Knowledge Exchange (CKE) at Leeds Beckett University the CEYH gathers together key figures in the region to present how they achieve “excellence” in their work.
