Overall winner of the East Midlands fbe awards 2016
Organisers of the East Midlands fbe
Awards have extended the deadline for nominations by one week.
Companies now have until Friday 8th
September to put forward construction projects and nominate rising stars in the
industry from across the region.
“We’ve had some exciting nominations
for the East Midlands fbe Awards already and know that others are on their way,
so we’re extending the deadline by one week to give applicants a little extra
time in which to submit their entries,” said Eddie Mewies, regional chairman of
the East Midlands fbe and MD of M-EC Consulting Development Engineers.
“In previous years, we’ve had a wide
range of projects nominated, showcasing some of the very best development
schemes that have been undertaken in the region. We are looking forward to
highlighting some of the latest projects and also putting some of our brightest
young professionals under the spotlight in our rising stars award category.”
The East Midlands fbe Awards
recognise and reward the teams behind some of the best development projects
across Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire and Lincolnshire.
Free to enter, the awards feature
the following categories: Regeneration, Residential, and Non-Residential
developments, along with Rising Star of the Year. The winners of the first
three categories will automatically form the shortlist for the Overall East
Midlands Scheme & Team Award.
Tickets are also on sale for the East
Midlands fbe Chairman’s Dinner & Awards night, held at the City Rooms in
Leicester on 12th October 2017, when the awards will be presented.
Around 150 professionals from the
construction, development and property sector in the region are expected to
attend the ceremony, which will raise money for Wooden Spoon
– the children’s charity of rugby, which aims to positively transform the lives
of children and young people with a disability or facing disadvantage across
the UK and Ireland through the power of rugby.
As well as award entries
now being open and tickets on sale for the ceremony, two sponsorship
opportunities are also still available for the event. Sponsors already on board
include main sponsor DW Hicks, BSD who is sponsoring the drinks reception, M-EC,
who is sponsoring the Non-Residential Award and Arthur J Gallagher, who is
sponsoring the Regeneration Award.
