The Judges want to see how organisations delivered excellence to the client, meeting and possibly exceeding their requirements and expectations. That Products meet and exceed user requirements and expectations and move the industry forward. Courses meet and exceed requirements and expectations and introduce novel ways of educating. The Judges are interested in the cost and value engineering aspects of projects, innovative procurement routes and project delivery, and meeting the client’s requirements, the programme, budget, quality and safety standards. The demonstration of good planning and innovative approaches to projects, along with the use of emerging digital tools to deliver safely constructed projects will be of great interest. The positive effects on the end-user, the environment, economy and society will also be factors of influence.
Each entrant must complete the online Entry Form specific to the category they wish to enter. The criteria on which entries are judged for each category are embedded in the questions displayed and any additional material required or suggested will be noted on the entry form. The Judges will use the answers to the questionnaire, images and supporting material to score the entry and select the finalists in each category. The finalist will be the highest scoring entrants in each category. Only one entry per company per category is permitted unless stated. Multiple categories may be entered. All construction project finalists will have an interview stage with the exception of Product Innovation, Engineering Design and Third Level Course, these categories will be evaluated on the original submission material.
