Building Communities Awards

BCA19 Logo with J Tom


On Friday 15th February 2019 we held our 5th annual Building Communities Awards (sponsored by J Tomlinson), this year at the Athena in Leicester. The black tie event was attended by 440 housing and construction professionals who enjoyed a drinks reception, a delicious 3 course meal, the presentation of awards to 12 worthy winners, a charity auction and raffle, late-night kebabs and veggie sausage cobs, a cashless casino and a DJ session from 12am to 3am.


We would like to express our gratitude to everyone involved in making the Building Communities Awards 2019 the biggest and best event EEM has ever held.


Congratulations to all of the finalists, especially those who were selected as runners up and winners by our independent judges. The complete list of winners is here and the link to the photos  is here.


An incredible £22,000 was raised for Prostate Cancer UK and another £12,000 was raised for Rhubarb Farm, which we upgraded into a huge surprise for them; a 17 seater minibus which they desperately needed. You can watch the grand reveal video here and you can watch their reaction speech hereVideos created by Stag Communications.  Prostate Cancer UK are extremely grateful for the donation they received and Jennie from Rhubarb Farm says the mini-bus reveal was one of the biggest surprises she’s ever had and they are totally blown away by everybody’s support.
