The Chartered Institute of Building has disclosed the names of the 80 finalists of the 2024 CIOB Awards.
Shortlisted candidates include construction managers from Sir Robert McAlpine, Wilmott Dixon, BAM, Kier, Mace and many other contractors.
The prestigious annual awards recognise achievements by project managers and leaders in the UK construction industry across 14 categories, including Rising Star, Team of the Year and the celebrated Construction Manager of the Year.
There will also be awards specifically for sustainability, and equality, diversity and inclusion following their category debuts in last year’s competition.
Caroline Gumble, CIOB’s chief executive, said: “The CIOB Awards has long been a showcase for the very best of leadership and talent in our sector and this year is no different, with more than 80 individuals and companies making the list of finalists.
“Many congratulations to all our finalists and I look forward to seeing many of them in the spring of next year at our wonderful awards event, this time in its new London home.”
Construction Manager of the Year 2022, Kier Construction’s Joe O’Connell MCIOB, said: “Winning the coveted title of CIOB Construction Manager of the Year is a career high and I am delighted to have been chosen for the industry’s most prestigious award.”
O’Connell won for his work helping to deliver an ultra-energy-efficient leisure centre for Exeter City Council. His team also scooped the Team of the Year prize.
Judges go through a rigorous assessment process to select finalists for each category, which includes assessing written applications, conducting site visits and hosting panel interviews.
