The Construction Excellence Awards were launched in 1999. For over 20 successful years, the CEF Excellence Awards have been the most prestigious event in the Northern Ireland Construction calendar, with some of the industry’s most influential people in attendance. The Awards provide an opportunity to recognise the achievements of the local Construction industry and to publicise the substantial contribution that our industry makes to the economy and society in Northern Ireland. After a highly successful event in 2023, we are again returning to a highly anticipated in-person gala evening on Thursday 3rd October 2024, hosted by Television Presenter & Journalist Phil Spencer.

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

As we move towards the Gala Evening in October here you will find the latest news on this year's Awards.

Renowned for their industry-leading expertise, our Judges are drawn from a wide field to ensure the credibility of the Awards.

This section details the General Rules of the Awards as well as the key dates between now and the Gala Evening in October 2024. All entrants are advised to familiarise themselves with this information.

Each and every year, we are indebted to our suite of high calibre sponsors for their support. Without this, the Awards would not be possible.

If you would like further information on becoming a sponsor then we would like to hear from you!
