Time to recognise construction’s top talent

  • Prestigious CIOB Awards open for entries until September
  • Winners to be announced at a glittering ceremony in London in May 2025
  • Categories include Rising Star, Team of the Year, Client of the Year and the coveted Construction Manager of the Year title.

Nominations for the most talented individuals in the construction industry are once again being sought in preparation for the Chartered Insitute of Building’s coveted awards ceremony.

CIOB will host the prestigious event, formerly known as the Construction Manager of the Year Awards, at the London Hilton Metropole Hotel on 15 May 2025.

It is a chance for construction workers across the UK to put their projects and names forward to be recognised as leaders in their field.

Categories up for grabs will recognise teams, and individuals championing some of the most important topics across the industry including sustainability and equality diversity and inclusion (EDI).

Caroline Gumble, CEO at CIOB, said: “The CIOB Awards are a highlight for me every year. In fact, for more than 40 years now CIOB has been providing this platform to celebrate this important industry and some of the incredible people in it.

“With 600 people in the room for the 2024 awards ceremony, we had an amazing opportunity to shine a light on some inspiring stories and some brilliant people. I’m already looking forward to next year and I encourage everyone working in the built environment sector to nominate the colleagues and projects who deserve recognition.”

The 2024 Construction Manager of the Year title was scooped up by Barry Kingscote of Galliford Try for his project to demolish and reconstruct an eight-storey building just a stone’s throw from one of the jewels in London’s crown – Marble Arch.

Other categories at the 2025 award ceremony will include the Rising Star Award, which recognises young and aspiring leaders within the construction sector.

The closing date for entries is 13 September 2024. CIOB will reveal the list of finalists later this year before the winners are announced at a glittering ceremony in London next Spring.
