Entries are now being invited for an awards scheme that highlights
some of the best construction schemes across the East Midlands. 
The East Midlands fbe (Forum for the Built Environment) will
be staging its annual awards event on 15th October 2015 at the City
Rooms in Leicester. Around 120 professionals from the construction, development
and property sector in the East Midlands are expected to attend the East
Midlands fbe’s sixth annual awards ceremony and dinner. 
MC for the evening will be BBC East Midlands political
editor John Hess. 
Now the hunt has begun for worthy winners of the awards,
which recognise and reward the scheme and the whole team behind it. 
Last year’s overall winner was The King Richard III Visitor
Centre in Leicester, which also took the best Non-Residential Award. Best
Refurbishment and Regeneration Award went to Castleward in Derby, which is
being developed by Compendium Living. St James Gate, Anstey, in Leicestershire,
received the Best Residential Award. 
This year the awards will feature the same three categories
– Non-Residential, Residential, and Refurbishment and Regeneration. They are
free to enter and are open to any schemes in Derbyshire, Leicestershire,
Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire that have been completed between October 2014
and September 2015.  Nominations can be
made by anyone involved in the scheme, not just members of the fbe. 
The deadline for nominations is Friday 21st
August 2015. Entries will be judged by a select panel of construction
East Midlands fbe regional chairman Jef Todd, development
director at civil and structural engineering firm BSP Consulting, said: “Each
year it becomes more difficult for the judges to choose the winners, which
illustrates the very high standard of development in schemes over many sectors
in the East Midlands, and we are looking forward to seeing the nominations that
are put forward this year.” 
Tickets and sponsorship opportunities for the event are also
now available by visiting http://www.fbeonline.co.uk/east-midlands/events/fbe-east-midlands-chairmans-dinner-and-awards-2015.htm
