Celebrating Construction 2018

Acivico announces shortlist for Built in Quality awards 2018

Preparations are gathering pace at Acivico headquarters as our Building Consultancy team are finalising preparations for their twentieth annual Built In Quality Awards which aim to celebrate, promote and reward excellent work in construction.
The award ceremony which is part of the wider Celebrating Construction event 2018 is co-hosted by Acivico, the Built Environment Hub (BEH) and the West Midlands Branch of the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) is the largest showcase of the construction industry’s activity in the West Midlands. The occasion provides recognition of the professionalism, excellence and innovation that lies at the heart of the West Midlands’ construction community and aims to represent the broadest possible spectrum of achievements.
After months of work calling for nominations and judging the very high standard of entries that has flooded in, the Acivico organising team are finally ready to reveal the lucky shortlisted entries for the Built in Quality part of the ceremony. Finalists have been chosen from projects nominated by local authority building control surveyors across the whole of the West Midlands Region. Please see the full line up below.
The Lucky winners will be announced on the night of the glittering award ceremony on Friday 13th April 2018 at the ICC in Birmingham. Once again, the audience is in for a great evening of celebration as the versatile Mark Durden-Smith has returned to the stage to host proceedings. Don’t miss out the fun, join in the jewel in the crown of the midlands construction social calendar. Tickets on sale now please follow the link.


Brand new to the proceedings this year is the Acivico National Award introduced to recognise high quality projects outside of the region where the Acivico Approved Inspector team have worked with designers and contractors throughout England.
