Finalists announced for the National Federation of Builders’ seventh annual awards

The NFB Awards 2019 will celebrate the high quality work and commitment delivered by NFB members across England and Wales. The awards reflect the dynamic nature of the construction industry and the excellent standards that have been achieved.

The awards scheme closed for entry on 15 February 2019 and was followed by a stringent selection process.

Richard Beresford, chief executive of the NFB, said:

“This year, we received a record amount of entries and the process of creating a shortlist has been tough and involved much deliberation. Our panel of expert judges usually aim to select a maximum of three finalists for each category, but in some cases they felt that the calibre of submissions was so high that more ought to be recognised for their excellence. However, on the night, there can only be one winner for each of the awards.”
