In a statement, the editorial team have urged the construction industry to submit their nominations in before the deadline. They add that the response to the awards has been excellent in a tough year for the industry, with dozens of nominations coming in over the last few days. However, they urge the industry to continue submitting before the close, with several new categories up for grabs at this year’s edition.
Once the deadline has passed, the nominations will be collated and passed onto a panel of expert judges for voting.
In addition to the regular categories featured at the Big Project ME Awards, this year has seen the addition of categories such as ‘Fire and Life Safety Innovation, ‘Excellence in Health and Employee Safety’, ‘Digital Transformation Champion’ and ‘Energy Innovator of the Year’.
