West Midlands awards celebrate excellence

5 June 2019

The Celebrating Construction Awards – run in partnership with the CIOB and Constructing Excellence Midlands – joined forces with Midlands Generation for Change (G4C) and Constructing Excellence West Midlands Awards in April for a high-profile ceremony in Birmingham.

The evening was hosted by Mark Durden-Smith, while Professor Charles Egbu FCIOB, CIOB senior vice president, welcomed the 500 guests to the ceremony with a short speech.

The Midlands G4C Awards recognised achievers in the industry under the age of 36, while the West Midlands Celebrating Construction Awards showcased innovative solutions and developments from across the region.

With over 150 outstanding submissions, G4C & Constructing Excellence Awards judges had a tough task. The night’s big winner was Midland Metro Alliance, with two Constructing Excellence categories – the People Development Award and the Integration & Collaborative Working Award – for its Transforming the West Midlands through Alliancing and Collaboration initiative.

Wesley Belle from WM Housing Group also took home two awards, one for Young Trainee of the Year – a category sponsored by CIOB Novus – and the second for Young Achiever of the Year.
