Forterra snap up space in sponsor line up for the 2020 East Midlands Bricks Awards

Forterra has joined the sponsor line up for the 2020 East Midlands Bricks Awards. Retuning for another year, the Northampton-based manufacturer of building products, is sponsoring the Sustainable Development of the Year category.

The awards, which will take place on Wednesday 25th March 2020 at Trent Bridge Cricket Ground, celebrate the outstanding work of those shaping the landscape of our region, recognising development projects and people in commercial and public building across the East Midlands – from offices, industrial and residential, through to community projects such as leisure schemes and schools.

Talking to Business Link Forterra said: “At Forterra, we are proud of our clay brick heritage, which dates back over 150 years. Since that time, our products have been used in the construction of homes, commercial buildings, and vital infrastructure up and down the UK, all testament to brick’s ability to stand the test of time, physically and aesthetically.

“I have no doubt that this year’s awards entries, showcasing clay brick in use, will also endure and be enjoyed by many generations to come, reminding us yet again why we’re proud to be involved with the East Midlands Bricks Awards, sponsoring the Sustainable Development of the Year category.”

Nominations for the awards are now open. Nominating a company or project is absolutely free of charge, and we encourage companies and authorities across our region to nominate a company/project for one of the categories. These include: Contractor of the Year, Developer of the Year, Commercial Development of the Year, Residential Development of the Year, Sustainable Development of the Year, Deal of the Year, Most Active Agents of the Year, Architects of the Year, Excellence in Design, Responsible Business and of course Overall winner. The process is quick and easy – just click here to access a nomination form.

The winners of each category will be celebrated at a glittering ceremony on Wednesday 25th March 2020, at Trent Bridge Cricket Ground in the Derek Randall Suite. Over 150 property and construction professionals attended the event in 2019.
