The specialist contractor award is aimed at specialist sub-contractors - but not specialist divisions of main contractors that undertake, for example, housing refurbishment work. Specialist firms owned by large contractors are able to enter. NB please note that a specialist firm that operates principally as a main contractor should be entered into the relevant main contractor category rather than the specialist contractor category. The projects and construction work your firm has been involved with in the last 12 months (April 2023-April 2024) demonstrates outstanding features and innovative solutions to difficult problems. You should include pictures to illustrate highlighted projects and entries will be judged on the following criteria:

  • How your firm is responding to the current market conditions (Consider questions such as: What are you doing differently? What is your approach to partnering with clients and suppliers? What new products, services or processes have you introduced this year?)
  • How your firm resources training and R&D (Highlight how much you invest in people, skills and research & development)
  • How your firm measures customer satisfaction (Highlight systems used and how often satisfaction levels are measured) Your firm's approach to sustainability in business operations and projects (Highlight specific achievements this year)
  • How your firm approaches health and safety policy and corporate social responsibility (Highlight any achievements in these areas over the last year)
