The 2023 winners of the prestigious Considerate Constructors Scheme’s (CCS) national Leading Lights Awards were announced.

An eagerly anticipated awards ceremony took place in November 2023 at the Lancaster Hotel, central London.

The ceremony showcased the exemplary work of UK and Irish construction organisations, their sites and individuals – celebrating their outstanding efforts in going above beyond the CCS Code of Considerate Practice.
