Digital Initiative of the Year
This category recognises projects that are driving the use of smart technologies in construction.
Rapid developments in digital design solutions, additive manufacture and interconnected devices mean that the construction industry will become increasingly data-enabled. How this data is used will change the way that new and existing assets are designed, built and operated and how users will interact with them. Judges will look for project teams that have:
- Demonstrated a clear understanding of how this initiative could improve performance on this project
- Actively rolled out the initiative, developed or tailored specifically for this project
- Clear evidence of the impact of this initiative
- Demonstrated how their initiative is cutting edge and is leading the field in this area
- The potential to showcase the UK construction industry through this initiative
The project this initiative is being used on does not have to be complete; what is required is evidence that the project is tackling the specific initiative in a new and innovative way and that its positive impact can be measured or quantified.
Because projects may not be complete, shortlisted candidates will be interviewed by a panel of our judges, selected for their expertise in this area.
