The winners of the 2019 Construction Computing Awards were announced earlier this month at the Grand Connaught Rooms in London’s Covent Garden., and for the third year running we were the chosen charity for the evening.
Affectionately known as “The Hammers” and now in their 14th year, the Construction Computing Awards showcase and reward the technology, tools and solutions for the effective design, construction, maintenance and modification of commercial buildings, residential and social housing and civil engineering projects of all sizes.
A fantastic evening started with a Champagne reception which allowed everyone to catch up with old friends and start to make new ones. This year’s keynote was delivered by Steven Eglington, BSc (Hons), FBCS, FCart.S, MIoD, MIAM, MPWI, Director of Geo Enable and chair of BIM4Infrastructure UK – Part of the UK BIM Alliance, who spoke about the importance of training and skills for the next generation. After Steven, our CEO Bill Hill updated everyone on how the money raised last year was spent and the work the Charity was doing. Following Bill, guests then enjoyed a superb 3-course dinner and the awards ceremony. A representative from the Awards commented;
“We are very proud and delighted to report we raised nearly £12,000 pounds for the charity this year.”
The Construction Computing Awards have become a key event for the industry to network, exchange thoughts and ideas and dare we say we are looking forward to next year’s event on 12 November already!
Huge thank you to everyone who organised and attended the event. The money raised will go a long way to provide support to construction workers and their families.
