John Armstrong, Managing Director of the Construction Employers Federation, said, “Many congratulations to all those that have been shortlisted in this year’s Awards. Our panel of judges had tremendous difficulty in shortlisting well over 100 entries to the list of finalists that we have now announced.

“Once again, in a hugely competitive market, the standard of entries showcases the high standard of work that the Northern Irish construction industry continues to deliver locally and beyond these shores.

“At a time of undoubted economic and political uncertainty, construction companies continue to deliver projects of substantial economic and social importance and I look forward to outcome of the judging process that will be revealed at the Gala Evening in October”.

This year’s Showcase of Finalists event will take place at the IFA National Football Stadium at Windsor Park, the 2016 Overall Winner, on 13 September and will give finalists the opportunity to demonstrate the excellence of their project to customers, suppliers and industry professionals.

The winners will be announced at a Gala Evening on 12 October at the Culloden Hotel.
