On 16th March, just one day after hearing of its shortlisting in the Construction News Awards, SBS received confirmation that it had also made the finals of the East Midlands Celebrating Construction Awards.
SBS will be a finalist in the 'Integration & Collaborative Working Award' category. The winners will be announced at the awards evening, which will take place on 19th May 2017 at the Nottingham Belfry.
The 'Integration & Collaborative Working Award' will be one of the hardest-fought categories in the competition, featuring a total of eight nominees.
SBS's nomination centres upon a number of schemes delivered in the East Midlands, but principally, its work with Nottingham City Homes. Its shortlisting came as welcome news to Group Marketing Manager David Elton, who said: "This is tremendous recognition for the works undertaken for Nottingham City Homes during the past two years. We have managed to be successfully shortlisted in all the awards we've entered over the past six months.
"The NCH schemes were procured through Efficiency East Midlands, and effective collaboration has been a key hallmark of our work on this framework. Good working partnerships have been at the heart of our successes on these schemes, and they have already helped us to win two industry awards this year. With the Construction News Awards coming soon, and now the Celebrating Construction Awards, we'll be keeping our fingers crossed for a couple more."
