Of 2005's awards, chair of judges David Lazenby said that 'the quality of winners remains remarkably high'.

In looking at entries that range from 'complex elegance to practical simplicity', the judges were comparing buildings and structures for their 'efficiency, cost effectiveness, aesthetics and innovation'. This year five awards were given to two buildings and three bridges.
