Celebrating success at CIOB Awards Dinner

Winners celebrate & charity overwhelmed at CCIHWY annual awards

More than 320 representatives from housing providers and construction firms across Yorkshire came together on Friday 17th April to celebrate the Committed to Construction in Humber & West Yorkshire Awards.

The awards, held at the Royal Armouries, Leeds, were endorsed by the Chartered Institute of Building working in collaboration with Little Spark and sponsored by CITB Construction Skills. The awards reflected the dynamic nature of the construction industry and highlighted the broad spectrum of construction excellence delivered by businesses working in the area.

CIOB Leeds & West Yorkshire Centre Chairman, Paul Clarkson said - “These awards celebrate the region’s commitment to building communities and highlight the broad spectrum of construction excellence delivered by businesses working in the area. They demonstrate what can be achieved through strong partnerships, a clear vision and delivery through high quality implementation.

 We were overwhelmed at quality of the entries we received. The winners are all very deserving of their awards and we look forward to seeing them again next year and finding out more about their ongoing and future programmes of work.”

Hosted by Harry Grattion, the eleven winners were presented with their awards by representatives from the category sponsors.

The winners of the CIOB Innovation Achievers Award, Stanley Whetstone and Bob Harris for their product Oxypod™, as well as the CIOB Undergratuate Dissertation Award winner, Mark Doherty were also presented with their awards at the start of the evening.

The chosen charity for CCIHWY this year was St. Gemma’s Hospice, based in Moortown, Leeds.  They provide care to local people living with all types of incurable illnesses, as well as offering support to family and friends. They also provide emotional support and alternative therapies such as massage and Reiki, enabling patients to celebrate special occasions and even hold weddings at the Hospice.

At the awards on Friday night £2500 was raised for St Gemma’s and Tracie Harrison, Senior Fundraiser for the Hospice said - “We are delighted to have the support of CCIHWY, the support we receive from organisations like this is very much needed and appreciated by our committed team of staff as well as the patients and everyone connected to St Gemma’s.’

 The Awards will be held again next year in Spring 2016. The Committed to Construction in Humber & West Yorkshire Awards are the most prestigious event in the construction industry’s social calendar in the region.
