The industry’s Oscars

We’re proud to stage the awards again – the industry’s Oscars – and we look forward to celebrating the further strides that the industry has taken in the past year.”

In response to feedback and recognising industry trends, we’ve added new categories focused on asset management, digital consultancy and the next generation of digital construction professionals.”
