SPELLER METCALFE SHORTLISTED FOR THE CONSTRUCTION NEWS AWARDS 2016
the 2016 Construction News Awards, making the shortlist from among a record number of entrants.
The Master’s House in Ledbury has been shortlisted as a finalist, following its highly detailed restoration project under the West Midlands Contractor Framework.
This follows Speller Metcalfe’s win as Contractor of the Year at last year’s awards, beating off some major household names for the title.
Before the awards, all finalists will attend face-to-face judging by members of the 61-strong jury, made up of the most influential clients and experts in the UK.
This year the judging line-up includes tens of the country’s top clients, including:
• Ian Ballentine, executive procurement director, Heathrow
• Munish Datta, head of plan A and FM, Marks and Spencer
• Louise Ellison, head of sustainability, Hammerson
• Simon Kirby, chief executive, HS2
• Flan McNamara, construction director, Sellar Property Group
• Jim O’Sullivan, chief executive, Highways England
This year the Construction News Awards are celebrating their 20th anniversary and 20 years of celebrating the very best contractors in the UK. Within their 20 targeted categories, there are two new ones for this year: Diversity Champion of the Year and Housebuilder of the Year.
Construction News’ editor Rebecca Evans commented:
“This year’s Construction News finalists are at the leading edge of UK construction, setting the standards for the whole industry to follow and ensuring their businesses are innovating for the future.
“I look forward to meeting the finalists at the face to face judging and hearing about their inspirational work.”
The winners will be announced on 14 July 2016 at a glamorous ceremony at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London, where over 1,300 of the industry’s elite will join together for a night of entertainment, celebration and networking.
