Climate Resilience Project of the Year
This category recognises excellence in completed projects – from concept, through procurement, design and construction to delivery on time and budget, through to ultimate use and user satisfaction. Due consideration must be shown to key elements including excellence in innovation, safety, community engagement, sustainability, and, crucially, the ultimate economic/social/occupier/end user benefit provided by the project as a whole. While pure architectural or engineering excellence is important, the BCIA are specifically not a ‘design’ competition and entries should reflect the breadth of the judging criteria described above.
Shortlisted projects in this category will be judged by site visit from our judging panel. Judges will be keen to meet as many of the project team and stakeholders as possible on the day.
This category recognises projects that provide resilience for the impact of extreme weather and climate change on people, properties and business. Judges will look for projects that:
- Work beautifully with their community
- Provide evidence of community engagement throughout
- Offer value for money
- Demonstrate sustainable use of materials and methodologies
- Demonstrate innovation in the techniques applied
- Consider future adaptability
- Provide evidence of economic and social benefit
- Provide environmental enhancement
This could include such projects as flood defence schemes and water supply resilience schemes.
