Nominations are now open for one of the East Midlands’ most popular construction sector awards ceremonies.

The fbe East Midlands is staging its eighth annual Chairman’s Awards evening in October – and nominations for the awards are now being invited.

Recognising and rewarding some of the best construction and development projects in the East Midlands, the awards are free to enter.

“On behalf of the fbe East Midlands committee, I am very pleased to announce that nominations are now open for this year’s fbe East Midlands Awards, and to share details about the Chairman’s Award Dinner,” said Emma Atkins, regional chairman of the fbe East Midlands.

“The awards ceremony is a popular date on the region’s calendar for the property, construction and development sector. It’s a time to recognise and applaud the excellent work undertaken in the East Midlands and to shine a spotlight on the rising stars in our industry.

“The event also provides a superb opportunity for networking with professionals within the sector, and I look forward to welcoming guests to the dinner and ceremony.”

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.
