The Concrete Manufacturers Association’s (CMA) biannual Awards for Excellence competition, which will take place in March 2018, covers a range of leading precast concrete building, construction and infrastructure projects. CMA members and their customers are invited to enter any of the 15 awards categories before 20 October 2017.

Henry Cockcroft, marketing manager of the CMA, says that packs are currently being sent out and members can enter as many projects as they like.

“Any technically outstanding project, no matter how small or large can be entered, provided one or more precast concrete products from a CMA member were used in its execution. It is not the size of the project that matters but rather the way it satisfies the requirements of the award categories,” says Henry.

The award categories have been structured very carefully to cater for all types of precast elements, and will be judged in two different groups with specific categories according to the design, application and nature of those elements. Fifteen category winners will each receive a winning trophy. Four floating trophies will also be awarded to the two best entries from each entry group.

All Awards entries will also be published in a web-based entry book which will be posted on the CMA’s website.
