Constructing Excellence in the North East (CENE) has announced the launch of its two annual awards and is calling for entries.
The Generation for Change (G4C) Awards and the Constructing Excellence North East Awards (CENE) will take place in April and June.
Generation for Change is part of Constructing Excellence, supporting young professionals within the industry. The awards, will take place at The Newcastle-Gateshead Hilton Hotel on 28 April with Northern Counties Builders Federation (NCBF) as headline sponsor.
Now in its 19th year, the CENE Awards, will be held at the Grand Hotel Gosforth Park on 16 June, with CDM Recruitment as the headline sponsor.
Winners are selected across various categories including Innovation, Integration and Collaborative Working, Value, Digital and People Development. The regional winners will go onto the national final in the autumn.
Key calendar highlights within the North East built environment, both awards provide an opportunity for organisations, projects and individuals to be recognised.
Submissions for the G4C awards must be received by 17 February and 3 March for the CENE awards.
Catriona Lingwood, chief executive at Constructing Excellence in the North East, said: “As we start 2023, our two prestigious awards programmes are now open for entries. As always, we would like to say a huge thank you to our headline, category and drinks sponsors for their support. We still have a few sponsorship packages available which provide great profile-raising opportunities.
“We very much look forward to both sets of awards and have our fingers crossed yet again that our regional winners will go on to scoop awards at the Constructing Excellence National final being held in London on 23 November.
“Among last year’s national winners from the North East was Kirils Holstovs, who works for Newcastle-based infrastructure consulting firm, AECOM, and who was awarded UK G4C Future Leader 2022.”
