Entry deadline extended for British Construction Industry Awards

Award-winning construction projects and initiatives have two more weeks to submit an entry to this years’ British Construction Industry Awards (BCIA) as the deadline for entries has been extended to 27 May.

The awards, which are jointly organized by NCE and the ICE, bring together the entire construction industry to celebrate excellent work delivered on site and shine a light on the better outcomes being delivered through innovative solutions adopted within projects.

Winners from this year’s awards will be announced at a gala event on 12 October at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London but shortlisted entries will be invited to present their work to the judging panels in early September at NCE’s London office.

“I am delighted that we are able to return to face-to-face judging this year, following two years of virtual judging sessions due to the pandemic,” said NCE editor Claire Smith. “Being able to come together for the judging – and we have a great line-up of judges this year drawn from client organizations, academia, industry bodies, contractors and consultants – to network as an industry is really important. Not only do the awards highlight some amazing work in the sector, the face-to-face judging process creates further opportunities for industry collaboration that will be essential for the next generation of award-winning work. ”

Full details of the judges, categories and criteria, as well as information about the awards ceremony itself can be found on the event website.

The project categories cover all aspects of the construction industry, while the initiatives focus on key elements to improve project delivery and it is encouraged that project teams enter collaboratively rather than individually. Projects entering the Environmental Project of the Year, Upgrade and Renewal Project of the Year, Transport Project of the Year and Utility Project of the Year will also be entered into the National Infrastructure Commission Design Principles Award which recognizes the quality of the design.

All winners in the projects and initiatives category will also be considered for the Initiative of the Year or the Project of the Year, while there is also the Small Project of the Year Award, the winner of which will be drawn from the shortlist for all the project categories and be based on projects below a certain size.

In addition, firms can also enter the Infrastructure and Projects Authority’s Industry Innovation Champion category that recognizes businesses that are applying innovation across the whole of their work.
