We are delighted to have introduced two new awards this year; Modern Methods of Construction Award and Net Zero Award, both recognising those businesses that are driving the industry forward with development and sustainability. Our thanks to all who have applied for the awards this year. The awards continue to provide a space to share innovation and best practice as well as demonstrating the contribution of the sector to improved social value, and economic and environmental outcomes.”
