Innovators from across the UK descended on Manchester last Thursday to celebrate the individuals and organisations transforming the face of the construction industry.

It was a night filled with food, music, and lots of laughter, with local comedian Justin Moorhouse bringing his a-game to a packed-out venue in the heart of Old Trafford.

In total, 20 Building Innovation Awards were up for grabs, spanning everything from modular manufacturing to software development, digital transformation to sustainability.

Not everyone could take home an award, of course; but that didn’t stop the champagne from flowing and the celebrations from continuing into the small hours.
