Entries are now being invited for an awards scheme that highlights some of the best construction schemes across the East Midlands.
The East Midlands fbe (Forum for the Built Environment) will be staging its annual awards event on 15th October 2015 at the City Rooms in Leicester. Around 120 professionals from the construction, development and property sector in the East Midlands are expected to attend the East Midlands fbe’s sixth annual awards ceremony and dinner.
MC for the evening will be BBC East Midlands political editor John Hess.
Now the hunt has begun for worthy winners of the awards, which recognise and reward the scheme and the whole team behind it.
Last year’s overall winner was The King Richard III Visitor Centre in Leicester, which also took the best Non-Residential Award. Best Refurbishment and Regeneration Award went to Castleward in Derby, which is being developed by Compendium Living. St James Gate, Anstey, in Leicestershire, received the Best Residential Award.
This year the awards will feature the same three categories – Non-Residential, Residential, and Refurbishment and Regeneration. They are free to enter and are open to any schemes in Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire that have been completed between October 2014 and September 2015. Nominations can be made by anyone involved in the scheme, not just members of the fbe.
The deadline for nominations is Friday 21st August 2015. Entries will be judged by a select panel of construction professionals.
East Midlands fbe regional chairman Jef Todd, development director at civil and structural engineering firm BSP Consulting, said: “Each year it becomes more difficult for the judges to choose the winners, which illustrates the very high standard of development in schemes over many sectors in the East Midlands, and we are looking forward to seeing the nominations that are put forward this year.”
Tickets and sponsorship opportunities for the event are also now available by visiting http://www.fbeonline.co.uk/east-midlands/events/fbe-east-midlands-chairmans-dinner-and-awards-2015.htm
