The power of second place

  • PR & Media

Have you heard the phrase ‘you’ve got to be in it to win it’? Well, this is how Fabrick feels about the Construction Marketing Awards! They are the ‘go-to’ awards for construction marketing and construction PR agencies like us, so it’s no wonder that we’re all scrambling to enter and fighting to get to the top of the Agency league.

For us, there’s no better way to get your business name in front of potential clients and showcase your work. Fabrick has been entering these awards for at least 13 years now – we’ve written so many that we can’t actually find the year of our original entry – and view them as a valuable opportunity to generate new business opportunities.


Our objective is to maintain a top 3 position, but that’s not easy with 19 strong competitors on the list. The league table is compiled using a four-year window of results so consistency is the name of the game.

Fabrick is a specialist marketing and PR agency for the built environment so the only way to stay at the top is to maintain our standards and continually deliver impactful marketing and content campaigns that make a difference to our clients’ businesses.

These awards are known for being the most prestigious marketing awards within the built environment, so you have to earn your place on the league table.
Our teams work exceptionally hard to deliver outstanding campaigns for our clients and we truly believe that we wouldn’t be as successful as we are if it wasn’t for them or their fantastic client relationships.

As corny as it sounds, we genuinely see ourselves as an extension of our client teams and treat them as colleagues – this may include a little banter at times!


So, did we win at the 2023 CMAs? No, we didn’t. Does this mean we are not successful? Absolutely not. Our teams work for 70+ clients delivering numerous services across 13 different market sectors, so to maintain a top 3 position in our industry’s most competitive awards is quite the achievement.


Fabrick has always been a great believer of awards and ‘you’ve got to be in it to win it’. If done well, awards can provide fantastic business opportunities and place your brand firmly on the map.
