The winners of the 21st Construction News Awards were announced on 13 July at the Grosvenor House Hotel, at an awards ceremony attended by leaders from across the industry.

The Construction News Awards celebrate inspiring projects and initiatives and saw jmarchitects’ Bolton Albert Halls refurbishment project scoop the Project of the Year Award for projects under £10m.

Construction News editor Tom Fitzpatrick commented:
“These awards recognise the brilliant contribution to society that this industry makes on a daily basis. From homes to schools and hospitals, to rail and roads and stadiums to supercomputers, we are proud to recognise the achievements of the companies working hard to improve the construction industry and help grow the UK economy.”

The project, completed by contractors Willmott Dixon was also recently recognised by Welsh Slate’s Living Heritage Award – created this year to celebrate projects using Welsh Slate on buildings that are important architecturally, historically or locally to a community.

Leader of Bolton Council, Cllr Cliff Morris, said:
“We are delighted with the conservation and regeneration of Albert Halls. We are also really pleased to be the first recipients of the Living Heritage award from Welsh Slate, which demonstrates the care and attention we have taken in restoring the halls, as we know it is an important building for Bolton people.”
