Categories

Integration and Collaborative Working

Sponsored by CIOB

Collaborative working is central to the core values of Constructing Excellence and its drive for positive change in construction. It is most likely to manifest in the delivery of specific projects, however those who can demonstrate a culture across a series or programme of projects show leadership in a sustained approach. Integration of the supply chain, the client and end users will normally lead to a better outcome satisfying all stakeholders.

People Development

SPONSORED BY GLEEDS

People are our greatest asset and this award recognises organisations that appreciate and nurture their workforce to ensure they maximise the value of everyone’s contribution to the business. By creating inclusive workplaces which support people of all abilities through training initiatives, education, mentoring, support networks and innovative programmes, companies can demonstrate a significant impact on the future of their businesses and the wider construction industry.

Sustainability

Sponsored by GSS Architecture

Construction clients have an important role to play in transforming the way the industry operates. How projects come to market has a significant impact on the ability of the construction industry to provide innovative, whole life value-for-money solutions.

Digital

Digital Construction embraces BIM, GIS, Big Data and other evolving technological advancements. Technology has transformed the world we live in and has potential to revolutionise the construction industry. This category rewards organisations, projects or initiatives that have adopted, advanced and achieved excellence in Digital Construction.

Conservation and Regeneration

The conservation or rehabilitation of old or historic buildings and sites is often an important part of neighbourhood revitalisation, providing physical and psychological focus for the community and creating jobs and investment opportunities. Construction work that involves the conservation and regeneration of historic buildings requires great care and specialist skills and techniques.

Health Safety and Wellbeing

Health, Safety & Wellbeing is of paramount importance and a culture of ‘safety first’ is crucial to performance. Overarching health and safety risk management systems and effective health initiatives are fundamental to reducing or eliminating all types of incident and promoting health and well–being across the supply chain.

Innovation

Sponsored by McGovern

Innovation is widely recognised as the critical factor for increased and sustained productivity and growth. It demonstrates an organisation’s confidence, capacity and appetite for improved performance and productivity gains. Innovation is most effective as a holistic approach that identifies both demand and ideas and is most successful when supported by collaboration between customers and the supply chain.

Residential Project of the Year

Sponsored by Muckle LLP

What is a residential project? This could range from an individual dwelling, to larger housing developments including apartments and specialist housing such as supported housing, residential care and the like. This award recognises developments that provide a desirable and sustainable place to live. That demonstrate creative approaches from concept to delivery.

Equality, Diversity & Inclusion

The built environment and the sector is for everyone. The more inclusive projects, organisations and the industry are, the better they serve its communities, the better it recruits and retains the most talented people, the greater the commercial success. According to the International Labour Organization, “Companies with more diverse, inclusive and invested [equity in people] business cultures and policies see a 59% increase in innovation and 37% better assessment of consumer interest and demand.”

Net Zero

High environmental and climate performance in construction aims to meet present day needs for housing, working environments and infrastructure without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs in times to come. It seeks to limit impact on the natural environment and demonstrate whole life sustainability. It is most effective when organisational culture, high design quality, technical innovation and transferability are abundant.

Value

Judges are looking for an initiative, project or series of projects that has focused on the value of facilities in use and the outcomes for owners and users. Good facilities add value by enabling owners and/or users to live or work better in them.

SME of the Year

SMEs are the backbone of the industry and are recognised by Constructing Excellence for their dominance of and contribution to the supply chain. According to the Office for National Statistics annual “Construction Statistics” although the number of UK construction companies has increased year on year since 2012, SMEs remain 99.9% of the companies annually. The part played by SMEs in innovation and product development is also recognised by BEIS in the Construction Playbook.

Modern Methods of Construction (MMC)

Sponsored by Northumbrian Water Group

Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) are seen as a route to transforming how we deliver public works projects and create a more effective construction industry. MMC is a wide term covering a range of offsite manufacturing and onsite techniques, providing alternatives to traditional delivery with significant improvements in productivity, efficiency, and quality. If MMC has been set as the goal and defines ‘what we are seeking’, then Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) is the process that describes ‘how it is done’.

Client of the Year

Sponsored by Faithful+Gould

Construction clients have an important role to play in transforming the way the industry operates. How projects come to market has a significant impact on the ability of the construction industry to provide innovative, whole life value-for-money solutions.
