Partnership Initiative of the Year
This award recognises best practice in project delivery. We are looking for initiatives used on UK or overseas projects that are seeking to raise the bar and serve as exemplars to the industry. These projects do 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.
This award seeks to recognise project teams that are changing ways of working to deliver better outcomes for all those involved in the construction industry. A key ambition is to ensure that construction and maintenance, especially of large capital projects, is quicker and more efficient. There’s also recognition from those constructing our buildings that there are better ways of working with building owners e.g. earlier collaboration, simplified procurement and whole-life costing. These issues create a great opportunity for the construction industry.
- Demonstrate how closer, more collaborative working is driving better project outcomes in terms of cost, time, quality or any of factor considered crucial to the client
- Provide evidence of this success in terms of client satisfaction.
- Judges will reward demonstrable efforts to truly engage the supply chain early in an active way
- Evolutions to or use of existing approaches are permitted, as are approaches developed and commonly used outside the UK.
