The CIOB awards, including the Construction Manager of the Year Award (CMYA) has been running annually for over 40 years. Since 1978 the evening of celebration has showcased incredible talent and highlighted the abilities of construction professionals across the UK.
 Award categories
Of all the CIOB Awards, the Construction Manager of the Year Award (CMYA) is the most prestigious. Since its launch in 1978, the CMYA award has shone a spotlight on the most talented Construction Managers across the UK, and many of the previous winners have gone on to work on iconic landmarks like Canary Wharf and The Shard. CMYA involves an in-depth judging process, which ensures that the calibre of winners is consistently high. As a result of this, the award has a reputation for identifying the future leaders in the construction industry. The highly respected accolade of CMYA recognises the hard work of Construction Managers across a wide range of categories such as healthcare, education and residential. Each type of project comes with its own challenges, and by entering CMYA, finalists are able to demonstrate how they used their skills to overcome these and succeed.
 Rising star
Highlighting the best new talent across the globe, the International Rising Star Award considers entries from individuals that have been in the construction industry for 5 years or less and have demonstrated excellence in their work, the industry and amongst their peers. Rising stars stand out from the crowd and make a real impact on their project, employer, team and the industry as a whole. The stringent judging panel takes all areas of the application into consideration to decide on the International Rising Star. The award has been running for three years.
Every year CIOB members, fellows and finalists say the same thing…‘It was a team effort’. The CIOB Team Award celebrates the collaboration and combined efforts of groups of people working together to meet a combined goal. Teams can be any group of 3 or more persons working within the built environment within a single organisational entity. This award was introduced in 20221.
 Sustainability award
An increasingly important aspect of the construction industry and the role of professionals within it this award will do exactly as it says and recognise those who are striving to be part of the solution.
 Equality, diversity and inclusion awards
In recent years, there has been a visible and much-needed shift within construction towards better awareness and acceptance of the benefits that Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) provide in the workplace and wider society. The built environment is for everyone. The more diverse and inclusive the industry can become, the more it will serve the needs of our communities, hence this new award has been introduced.
Both a company and an individual will receive an EDI Award. CIOB are looking for a company that recognises the importance of diversity in the workplace and creates an inclusive environment in which all employees feel valued and can thrive. The individual winner of this award could be an individual who’s acted as a senior role model, inspiring others to follow or overcome personal barriers to excel in their career, or they may have provided a passion for ensuring that all colleagues and members of the wider public feel valued and respected.
The Client Award recognises organisations that have led the commissioning of construction projects. It celebrates the impact which those commissioning projects have had or will have on improving the lives of all those who interact with the built environment. Collaborative working, risk management, embracing the use of digital technologies and promoting equal opportunities are just some of the factors considered by the judges.
Last year the Awards event returned to London’s JW Marriott Grosvenor House Hotel, after a successful online awards ceremony in 2020. This year CIOB will be at the Grosvenor House Hotel once again, on 28 September 2022 to find out who will take home the trophies and to applaud the achievements of all the finalists.
The CIOB Awards are free to enter and open to non-members, as well as members of CIOB. The deadline for entries is 31 May 2022. The award ceremony will be held on the 28th September at the JW Marriott Grosvenor House London.
