CEW Awards 2024
The CEW Awards 2024 are now open for entries
Deadline for Entries –
Our awards are recognised across the Welsh built environment as the biggest and brightest celebration of best practice. They are a clear demonstration of the core strength of construction in Wales and the desire and commitment to deliver buildings, housing, infrastructure, and facilities of all kinds in a collaborative and sustainable manner.
Our awards are open to all organisations and project teams involved in delivering buildings and civil engineering projects in the West Midlands. Entries are welcomed from developers, clients, contractors, specialist and sub-contractors, engineers, of all disciplines, members of the design team and other consultants. The key factor is that the project, scheme, process or philosophy contributes to the West Midlands built environment and can be celebrated as an example of best practice
BUILDING PROJECT OF THE YEAR
The Project of the Year category celebrates inspirational projects that deliver outstanding outcomes. We are looking for projects that exemplify the Constructing Excellence principles, which fully align with the collaborative work we are undertaking with the Construction Leadership Council. Projects must demonstrate the successful implementation of better ways of working and so help to provide a template for others to learn from.

CLIENT OF THE YEAR
Construction clients have an important role to play in transforming the way the industry operates. How and when projects come to market significantly impacts the ability of the construction industry to provide innovative, whole life value-for-money solutions. We are looking for a construction client that has been actively involved in delivering the construction programme and developed strategies for encouraging and rewarding excellence. It goes without saying we expect a culture of collaboration and transparency to be at the heart of how the client operates and empowers the wider team.

CLIMATE ACTION AWARD
All of us, within the construction industry and beyond, have a responsibility to deliver Climate Action. It is a key driver behind many innovative tools, techniques and processes and impacts everything we do. Constructing Excellence would like to celebrate those projects or organisations that seek to deliver a positive impact, or a reduced negative impact, on the natural environment and demonstrate whole life sustainability in their approach to construction. Successful applicants will exemplify the use of organisational culture, high quality design, effective procurement practices and innovative tools and techniques to provide improved environmental performance and outcomes.
Construction and the built environment play a huge role in underpinning our society and economy. To unlock better societal outcomes, we need to take an informed view of value and not simply make decisions based on cost.
Clients need to work with their stakeholders to consider how to unlock wider benefits throughout the construction project and the lifetime of the asset. Tools such as the Value Toolkit enable clients and design teams to take a more informed view of value across four capitals – Produced, Natural, Social and Human.
Whilst value can mean something different to everyone, what it shouldn’t be is solely focused on cost. We are seeking projects that clearly demonstrate value-based decision making and the benefits in can bring.
The Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) Award aims to celebrate social, economic and environmental sustainability. We are looking for organisations or projects that demonstrate the greatest environmental and social impact or approach to generating such. Applicants must also exemplify effective governance structures and practices.
