Nominations are now being invited for the fbe East Midlands Awards 2018 to recognise and reward some of the best construction projects in the region and to turn the spotlight on the sector’s rising stars.

Being held for the seventh time, this year’s Chairman’s Awards Dinner switches from Leicester to the Albert Hall in Nottingham and will be staged on Thursday 4 October.

The awards, which are free to enter, are now accepting nominations.

“On behalf of the fbe East Midlands committee, I am delighted to announce that nominations are now open for this year’s fbe East Midlands Awards,” said Emma Atkins, regional chairman of the fbe East Midlands. “The event has become a firm fixture on the region’s construction and property development calendar, and we look forward to hearing about some of the latest projects completed within the East Midlands and the achievements of the potential future generation of leaders within the sector.”

There are four categories in the awards – Residential, Non-Residential, Regeneration and Rising Star Awards – with the best scheme crowned the overall winner. Nominations from Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire are being invited.

Projects must have been completed between September 2017 and August 2018, with the Rising Star Award open to individuals, who are under 30 years of age on 4 October 2018 and who have shown outstanding achievements in their field, whether that be in construction, design or associated professional or support services for the industry.

Tickets for the black-tie event, taking place from 7pm at the Albert Hall, North Circus Street, on 4 October, are also on sale, priced £60 for fbe members, £70 for non-members, with a table of ten costing £650.

“The event has sold out well in advance on previous occasions, so early booking online is advisable,” added Emma, practice & business development manager at architects Maber.
