“The CIOB Awards have been an important part of the construction leadership and management landscape for more than 40 years now. I’m therefore delighted that we are opening up the awards to highlight and celebrate the achievements of more of the talent in our sector and now able to acknowledge more of the innovation and best practice taking place across the UK.”
