Time running out to enter British Construction Industry Awards

The deadline is looming for entries into this year’s British Construction Industry Awards (BCIA)

Practices have until next Thursday (29.03.2012) to submit for the annual accolades which champions high-quality project delivery by British engineers, architects and contractors across a raft of categories.

Now in its 25th year, the prizes are given to schemes ranging from the best small building (with a value of up to £3 million) to the most successful project with a budget of more than £50 million.

Earlier this week Prime Minister David Cameron confirmed the government’s ongoing support for the BCIAs by again backing a special ‘best of show’ accolade - the Prime Minister’s Award for Better Public Building which is chosen from the all the shortlisted finalists.

This year sees the introduction of four new categories – BIM project application award, ICE President’s Award for energy infrastructure, product design innovation award and project finance (deal of the year) – which sit alongside the programme’s existing categories.
