Constructing Excellence in the North East – 2015 Awards Winners

The best of the North East construction industry was recognised at the 2015 Constructing Excellence in the North East (CENE) Awards last week. The awards celebrated all that is exceptional in the region’s construction industry and recognise those high-flying individuals and organisations leading the way in North East construction.

Attended by almost 600 construction professionals, the awards recognised individuals and organisations across 13 awards categories this year.

Catriona Lingwood, chief executive of CENE, said: “Every year I am impressed with the quality of work individuals and organisations produce in our region. This year was no exception, if anything, the general standard was even higher.

“These awards showcase only the very best and they continue to set the benchmark for the rest of the industry. All those recognised on the night should be exceptionally proud of their achievements.”

Each category winner will join the other regional winners at the national final in London in October, giving them an opportunity to receive further recognition on a truly national level.
