Celebrating excellence in our industry

Entries are open for the Construction Excellence Awards 2021...

CEF are delighted to announce that entries are now open for the Construction Excellence Awards 2021. Launched in 1999, the CEF awards are the largest and most coveted construction awards in Northern Ireland, providing a wonderful opportunity to showcase the very best of the NI construction sector and to celebrate the industry’s achievements. 

The aim of the competition is to promote excellence and to give recognition to those companies who are achieving the highest standards of construction. The kudos of winning an award continues to grow each year. 

Given the current climate, we have decided that it is not sensible to host our usual 600-person gala evening and we have decided to host an exciting new Virtual Event which will be streamed live on the evening of 7 October 2021.

This year’s awards are set to attract more attention than ever before, and with the enhanced social media presence and support from our media partners at NI Builder, we can ensure maximum exposure for our finalists and sponsors before, during, and after the event. 

This year CEF have introduced a number of exciting new award categories designed to recognise the importance of individuals within construction, from Apprentice/Trainees of the Year, to awards for Rising Star and Outstanding Contributor. We have also introduced a new category for Individually Designed House and have updated the scope of the Social Value category.  

In all, there will be 23 Awards covering all scales of project, both in NI and in GB/Ireland, and the highly coveted Quality awards for Training and Health & Safety.

Given the interruption to the awards in 2020, this year will also see a double crop of entries from 2019 – 2021. All CEF member companies are eligible to enter, including businesses registered with Safe-T-Cert and NVIR-O-CERT.

In lieu of the usual charitable collection at the gala dinner, CEF are encouraging applicants to support the industry’s nominated charity Action Mental Health by visiting: www.justgiving.com/campaign/CEFAWARDS2021

Please remember entries must be in before the deadline of Friday 4th June 2021
