The awards will be judged by an independent panel of eminent construction industry experts with the winner announced on 24 September at a ceremony to be held at London’s Royal Lancaster Hotel. Nick Prosser, Divisional Director comments: “To be shortlisted for the second year running is a real accomplishment.
The Awards are designed to recognise outstanding business achievement and, in what has been a tough year for the industry, it is encouraging to see so many companies still performing well.
