THE JUDGING PROCESS

BCI AWARDS - INTRODUCTION

In their 19th year, the British Construction Industry Awards once again highlight the building and civil engineering industry's performance in delivering highquality infrastructure to time, cost and satisfaction of clients and users.

The judging team found choosing between the many excellent submissions for the awards both difficult and very satisfying. Difficult because standards are so high and there are only a limited number of prizes; satisfying because projects suffering serious cost and time overruns are now rare exceptions.

Judging for the team, led by Mike Hussey of construction client Land Securities, began with every judge closely examining the 212 entry documents. Then in May the team met at the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) to choose shortlists for each project category.

A hallmark of the BCI Awards is that every shortlisted UK project is visited by a group of judges who interview design, construction and client representatives on site. The shortlist consisted of 29 projects, and each was inspected on one of eight visit days during June and July. In determining the International Award, the separate judging team shortlisted five projects and made site visits to two of them.
