A Concrete Partnership

The National Building & Construction Awards (NBCA) gathered yesterday with the British and Irish Trading Alliance (BITA) at the Royal Horseguards Hotel to announce the launch of this year's NBCAs

Now in their 5th year, BITA have stepped up to become headline partner, having supported the awards since their inception in 2019.

Over 240 building & construction businesses gathered to hear how BITA members can not only support their colleagues in the industry, but put themselves at the forefront of an incredible line-up of successful entrepreneurs.

Announcing this year's key partnership, Paul Whitnell, President at BITA, said "Our members are some of the very best construction businesses in the UK and we welcome this opportunity to highlight the importance of acknowledging success. I am hopeful that many more of our members will enter and at the very least reach the finals of these prestigious awards."

The awards ceremony promises to be a glamourous evening, taking place later in the year, where the winners will be celebrated in style at the Hilton Wembley.

Awards Director Damian Cummins, addressing the packed-out event, mentioned "It's a great pleasure to see so many building & construction businesses here today. These are the very people that will build our legacy and it's only right that we acknowledge the importance of their achievements. A huge thanks go to Paul, his team, and the BITA community, for joining with us this year."
