The East Midlands fbe (Forum for the Built Environment) has unveiled the names of the shortlisted finalists who are in the running to receive an accolade at the organisation’s annual awards ceremony.

some outstanding entries for the East Midlands fbe Awards. The number

professionals’ group. 
The awards,
sponsored by civil and structural engineering company BSP Consulting,
construction firm North Midland Construction, civil engineering firm M-EC
Consulting Development Engineers, and accountants Duncan & Toplis, reward the
