The ‘Team of the Year’ is open to teams comprising a minimum of three persons and must operate within the built environment. The team to be working for a single organisational entity. The award is open to all UK based teams. The nominated team can have worked for a CMYA entrant company (this year or previous years) and look at achievements deserving of recognition that have been made during the period from January 2020 to date. 

Caroline Gumble, CEO of The Chartered Institute of Building, said: 

The CIOB Awards have been an important part of the construction leadership and management landscape for more than 40 years now. I’m therefore delighted that we are opening up the awards to highlight and celebrate the achievements of more of the talent in our sector and now able to acknowledge more of the innovation and best practice taking place across the UK.”
