CIOB’s 44th annual awards will be even bigger and better
CIOB opens up its annual search for the UK’s finest construction and built environment talent, with a call for nominations for Rising Star, CIOB Team Award and an EDI award for both individuals and companies.
The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) is opening up the next group of categories in its annual search for the UK’s finest construction and built environment talent. Entries are now open for Rising Star, CIOB Team Award and an EDI – equality, diversity and inclusion – award for both individuals and companies.
Excitingly, 2022 sees the introduction of these two EDI awards, six months on from the publication of the CIOB Special Report and Charter: Diversity and Inclusion in Construction. These new categories have been designed to recognise the importance of diversity in the workplace and to shine a light on those who create an inclusive environment in which all employees feel valued and can thrive. The nominations are expected to highlight examples of a commitment to embedding EDI in the construction sector.
CIOB will also be seeking nominations for their Rising Star award, now in its third year. This is an international category which highlights the achievements and early career impact of those who have been in construction for five years or less.
Construction companies can also submit their nominations for the CIOB Team Award. First introduced last year, this award celebrates the collaborations of groups working together to meet a shared goal. Teams can be any group of 3 or more people working within the built environment within a single organisational entity.
No other awards in construction are regarded as highly as the CIOB Awards, including the long-established Construction Manager of the Year title. This annual celebration is an important opportunity to recognise and celebrate the accomplishments of exceptional professionals who lead by example, influencing and shaping our built environment.
Last year the prestigious CIOB Awards event returned to London’s JW Marriott Grosvenor House Hotel, after a successful online awards ceremony in 2020. This year CIOB will be at the Grosvenor House Hotel once again, on 28 September 2022 to find out who will take home the trophies and to applaud the achievements of all the finalists.
The CIOB Awards are free to enter and open to non-members, as well as members of CIOB. The deadline for entries is 31 May 2022.
