CENE Awards 2021

Sponsored by CDM Recruitment Ltd

Welcome to the 2021 Constructing Excellence in the North East Awards.

Our flagship awards ceremony is returning to the centre stage on Friday 8 October at The Gosforth Park Hotel. Thanks to our headline sponsor, CDM Recruitment LTD.

The event, which was held virtually last year, is a celebration of everything the North East built environment has to be proud of.

We are looking forward to seeing the sector come together once again as we toast your success.

We know the construction industry in the North East is of a high standard and we prove it each year, as the award winners go head-to-head with winners from other Constructing Excellence regions at the UK final in January.

In 2020 the North East claimed five winners and a highly commended.

Constructing Excellence in the North East has been delighted by the response to this year’s Awards with the high number of calibre submissions.

There have been some tough decision making by the judges. Please see the shortlisted entries for the 2021 Constructing Excellence in the North East Awards below.
