Contractor of the Year - GE Awards 2021
This category celebrates the achievements of geotechnical contractors or specialist geotechnical divisions within general contracting firms that can demonstrate achievement of clear business milestones over the last year and a half. The award will celebrate firms that have continually delivered innovation, quality and value between January 2020 and July 2021, while growing in terms of revenue, profits and staff numbers.
Entrants must be able to use projects undertaken to show their technical capabilities in delivering projects beyond the expectations of their clients, within budget and on time.
Judges will also consider the contractor's approach to coping with challenges on site and interacting with the supply chain and look for evidence of commercial, as well as technical success across the period.
We recognise that the Covid-19 pandemic might have had an adverse effect on some companies, initiatives and projects. We still strongly encourage companies and teams to enter this year’s GE Awards, as their pandemic response strategy will also be considered in the judging.
