KINGSTON BARNES & CONSTRUCTING EXCELLENCE – We had a fantastic day at the South West Construction Summit, followed by a fabulous evening at the South West Built Environment Awards which was celebrating its 11th year of excellence within the industry.

The South West Construction Summit was a combined Conference and Exhibition and bought together the regional construction industry and its supply chain to explore opportunities, major projects, client commitments and procurement best practice.

The event strives to guide and help the South West built environment sector to define their route map for grasping the strategic opportunities in a lively and structured way, allowing for plenty of input from industry leaders and their suppliers coalescing around a range of key themes.

The evening event was hosted by Suzi Perry, broadcast journalist. The regional awards are well recognised as being in a class of their own; they bring together the industry and celebrate the best of the South West region. It is a high point in the regional construction calendar and each year it commands the attention of industry professionals from across the South West.

A great number of leaders and innovators from across the construction sector gathered at Ashton Gate Stadium – Bristol to celebrate the very best industry projects.

We are again a proud sponsor of the Future Leader Award, and Kingston Barnes would like to say huge congratulations to Sophie Smith from Atkins for winning the award!

We would also like to extend our congratulations to the runners up and the rest of the evening’s winners. Andrew Carpenter, Chief Executive of Constructing Excellence South West said: “I would like to congratulate everybody who took part in the South West Built Environment Awards from the finalists through to the winners of this prestigious awards ceremony, that honours the best names in the industry. The awards are a fantastic celebration of everyone’s achievements.”

Kingston Barnes is passionate in understanding and having strong knowledge of the industry which is why we choose to sponsor these awards. It keeps us ‘in the know’ and ensures our roots are deeply ingrained in the construction world.

It was a great evening and we look forward to sponsoring and attending again next year!!
