Women in Construction Awards 2024

After the amazing support shown at Women in Construction Awards 2023 the industry leading awards event is back again for 2024. Women in Construction Awards 2024 promises to be a bigger and better event with an impressive line-up of past and future leaders in construction and the inclusive world.

Design and Build UK’s Women in Construction Awards unveils amazing women, their companies and the people who support them with a night dedicated to showcasing and highlighting their skills, experience and achievement in a variety of fields.

The awards event is scheduled for 26th September 2024 at The Brewery, City of London and we invite you all to nominate anyone who you think is deserving of this award, including yourself!

This event is not a typical affair – we are all aware of the skills gap shortage and the need to introduce more women into construction, as well as raise awareness of the potential of the industry to greater society. Design and Build UK Women in Construction Awards 2024 will once again be donating raised money to a charity at the upcoming Awards, after the amazing help the Maggie Oliver Foundation received from WIC Awards 2023.
