For 2021, as well as CIOB Rising Star, The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) has introduced two new categories: ‘Client of the Year’ and ‘Team of the Year’. These new categories are set to debut alongside the Construction Manager of the Year Awards (CMYA) at London’s JW Marriott Grosvenor House Hotel on 29 September 2021.

The ‘Client of the Year’ award is for organisations that have led the commissioning of construction projects. It is open to all UK-based organisations.

The nominated organisation can be a client of a CMYA entrant company (in 2021 or previous years). Submitted evidence will be for project(s) procured or project(s) in progress during the period from January 2020 to the entry submission date.

The ‘Team of the Year’ is open to teams comprising a minimum of three persons and operating within the built environment. The team must be be working for a single organisational entity. Entries should showcase achievements deserving of recognition that have been made during the period from January 2020 to the entry submission date.

The deadline for these categories is Wednesday 30 June 2021. They are free to enter and open to members and non-members.

[edit] Reaction

Caroline Gumble, CEO of The Chartered Institute of Building, said, “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.”
