This year, ceda has received a record number of exceptional entries to its Grand Prix Awards. The total number of contenders has increased significantly in recent years; this year’s figure is a huge 35% rise over last year, which was itself a 20% increase on 2018.

  • Design Project Under £50k
  • Design Project £50k to £200k
  • Design Project £300k to £500k
  • Design Project Over £500k
  • Outstanding Customer Service
  • Project Management Excellence

Submissions range in project value from £39,000 to more than £30 million and cover all sectors of the market, including hotels, stadia, education, healthcare, garden centres, fine dining, casual dining, pubs, restaurants and retail, highlighting the breadth, scale and excellence of Members’ work. 

Adam Mason, ceda Director General, commented, “I’m pleased and proud of the entries that we have received, not just the number but the standard and quality. The last few years will go down as challenging given the economic and political uncertainty but this demonstrates the brilliance of what our Members do on a daily basis”.

The judges of the prestigious Awards are industry veterans John Savage and Ron Neville. The winners will be announced at the ceda Conference and Gala Dinner 2020, being held this year at the Majestic Hotel, Harrogate, on the 23rd and 24th April.
