The CEF Construction Excellence Awards are the most instantly recognised, respected and hotly contested awards in the Northern Irish Construction Industry.



The CEF awards are the largest and most sought-after NI construction awards, providing a wonderful opportunity to showcase the best of the construction industry in Northern Ireland and to celebrate the industry’s achievements. The aim of the competition is to promote excellence and to give recognition to those companies who are achieving the highest standards of construction. The kudos of winning an award continues to grow each year.


This year we have updated the scope & criteria of the other categories.   

In all there will be 23 Awards covering all scales of project, both in NI and in GB/Ireland, and the highly coveted Quality awards for Excellence in Training and Excellence in Health & Safety and Wellbeing.


The CEF Awards are open to all CEF Full or Associate Members only.

The usual charitable collection will be at the gala dinner and we are encouraging applicants to support the industry’s nominated charity Air Ambulance NI  

Air Ambulance NI

Air Ambluance NI is a charity in Northern Ireland who work in partnership with the Northern Ireland Ambulance Service (NIAS) to provide the Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) for the region.

Serious or life threatening situations can happen to anyone at any time and on average, every single day in Northern Ireland, two individuals find themselves in critical need of AANI.

The charity's operational helicopter carries a crew compiling pilot, doctor and paramedic, 365 days of the year operating for twelve hours every day.  They attend some of the most traumatic medical incidents across the province and are dedicated to delivering the very best possible pre-hospital critical care, both at the scene and whilst transferring the patient to the most appropriate hospital for their specific injuries.

Their EC135 helicopter can get anywhere in the province in approx twenty five to thirty minutes and the rapid response is vital in an emergency situation.  If a patient reaches hospital within the Golden Hour (60 minutes after their injury) their chances of survival are dramatically increased.
