There are plenty of stars throughout constructions firmament but the Chartered Institute of Building wants to reveal and reward more through its International Outstanding Achievement Awards.
Now open for entry the awards recognise outstanding achievement across the diverse disciplines that exist in construction. From those setting in motion the procurement of a project, to business managers and health and safety experts, to those who manage the final structure and the range of talented individuals in between.
Saleem Akram, Director of Construction, Innovation and Development at the CIOB said:
“We want construction to take a moment and help us identify and reward those in the industry who are making a real difference.
“There are talented individuals out there who deserve to be recognised for what they are achieving. They may not enter themselves but they could be someone you know or work with and that is why we are asking the industry to take part in the search.
“It is important that construction showcases its very best individuals. Not just for them, or their employers but also to attract the next generation into a career in construction.”
