There is only a couple of months to go till the Hammers - the Construction Computing Awards held during the thrid week of November - and even shorter for you to vote for the companies, applications or services that you feel have made the most impact on your business in 2015. Each category is well represented, and judging by the incremental responses in past Hammers, this one - the Tenth - will be the best yet.

Nominations close on the 4th of September, so you still have time to make yours, and we would be delighted to receive one or two more in each category. Judging by the increased amount of construction in progress around the country, you are all probably too busy, anyway, but the benefits of increased visibility and respect within the industry are probably well worth the time spent putting together an overview about your project and emailing it to us.

Even better if there is a BIM aspect to the project - and which of them don't get embroiled in the process, as we are always on the lookout for interesting case studies for the magazine - and Hammers Awards nominations have proven to be a fruitful source in the past.
