There is much to be celebrated in the achievements of our construction industry across the South West in spite of the difficult economic climate. The twelve award categories are designed to recognise best practice as well as quality of service and product. It is a unique opportunity to obtain regional and national recognition for the work of your whole project teams.
The entry process is very straight forward. Anybody involved in a project can submit the entry.
• Projects you have been involved with and what makes them successful. Remember you can enter projects in more than one category.
• Colleagues who have made an outstanding contribution to a project or organisation, why not nominate them for the Achievers and Young Achievers awards?
• All those SMEs you have worked with during the year. Their contributions are often critical to the success of projects, make sure they get the recognition they deserve by nominating them for the SME Award.
The awards evening itself is a not to be missed event, and is all the more enjoyable if you have projects shortlisted for an award. So don't delay get your entries in. Closing date is the 1st March 2013.
Finally, don’t forget to book your places for the Awards ceremony on the 14th June.

Bristol’s attractiveness as a good place to set up and run a business is highlighted in the new edition of the Bristol Business Guide.
The guide gives details of over 5,000 Bristol companies and promotes the goods and services they provide. It also sets out the advantages Bristol has to offer to prospective national and international companies wishing to do business or invest in the city. Local construction companies are strongly featured.
UK BIM strategy has been launched. See the Constructing Excellence response to the strategy and the strategy download here is here: http://www.constructingexcellence.org.uk/news/article.jsp?id=11787. Adopting an industry-wide BIM process is likely to reveal a significant learning gap in many companies with people left wondering how to implement this into their own practice. In response CE South West and ARCOM, ICE, RIBA, UWE and CIOB organised a successful seminar designed to promote a deeper understanding of the impacts of BIM on your businesses and supply chain organisations.Delegates had the opportunity to voice their views on how a BIM may affect organisation and the preparation for smooth progression towards BIM adoption and use.
