Shortlist unveiled for Construction Excellence Awards

Shortlist unveiled for Construction Excellence Awards

The shortlist of finalists for this year’s Construction Excellence Awards has been unveiled after judges reduced the large number of entries across 14 categories down to a final 47.

All the finalists will now receive a judging visit before the showcase event in September.

This year’s showcase will take place on 7th September at the Wellcome-Wolfson Institute for Experimental Medicine at Queen’s University Belfast – the 2015 Overall Winner. This will give finalists the opportunity to demonstrate the excellence of their project to customers, suppliers and industry professionals. The winners will then be announced at a Gala Evening on 6th October at the Culloden Hotel.

The Construction Excellence Awards provide an opportunity to recognise the achievements of the local construction industry and to publicise the substantial contribution that our industry makes to the economy and society in Northern Ireland. Success at these awards has become the benchmark by which the industry judges itself.
