While the construction sector has a range of awards programs, there are none that are completely independent. The Construction Awards of Excellence are truly independent, owned by the sector for the sector, across all of the British Isles.

It’s guaranteed to be an evening that promises to be both enlightening and inspiring, as we celebrate the industry’s finest accomplishments, and you can be part of it!

The awards are designed to recognise those individuals and companies that set the gold standard in the construction sector.

The Construction Awards of Excellence is a joint initiative run by the National Federation of Builders and the Scottish Building Federation.

Why would you want to participate?

The awards are not limited to specific organisations; they are open to all construction and building companies across the UK and there are categories for everyone.
