The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) has started its search for the UK’s finest construction manager of 2021.
The launch of the process comes after the Construction Manager of the Year Awards (CMYA), which have been running for more than 40 years, were successfully moved to a virtual event for 2020. The ceremony was hosted by renowned architect and TV presenter George Clarke.
This year the CIOB is planning to be back at London’s JW
Marriott Grosvenor House Hotel on 29 September 2021 to celebrate the finalists.
The awards are unique in the sector and celebrate the talent
of those who manage construction projects rather than the project itself.
Dubbed the Oscars of Construction, they are recognised as one of the most
challenging and career-defining awards to win.
Past winners and industry leaders form an expert panel of judges from across the UK who assess applications, conduct interviews and scrutinise every aspect of the project. It is free to enter and the CIOB encourages the industry to put forward its best talent to showcase the very best of the sector.
Caroline Gumble, chief executive of the CIOB, said: “The Construction Manager of the Year competition has always sought out the very best of leadership and talent in our sector. Even last year, when our sector and all those in it faced immense challenges, the line-up of finalists was incredibly impressive and a testament to the remarkable resilience of our industry.
“CMYA 2021 will be an important opportunity to celebrate the
construction sector and the management talent working in it. I’m sure that,
once again, we’ll see fierce competition from the finest construction managers
in the industry, showcasing the highest levels of professionalism and
commitment. I’m looking forward to seeing what this year’s competition brings.”
Frank Connolly of Mace, CMYA 2020 winner, said: “I was over the moon to get a gold medal, and to then win the overall was a bit surreal. It was a shock, but I was amazed and delighted. It’s a fantastic award and a prestigious honour I dreamed of for many years. The CIOB did a fantastic job of it – it was seamless and planned really well.”
The CMYA is open for nominations until 19 March 2021. To submit a nomination – you may enter yourself or nominate one of your colleagues – visit the website: https://www.cmya.co.uk
