Temporary Works 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 category seeks to recognise that temporary works form a vital but often overlooked part of any construction project, large or small. Often the innovation in design and precision in execution surpasses that in the design and construction of the main works themselves. Looking at:
- Demonstrate how the temporary works solution enabled a better final solution or increased safety during execution.
- Highlight any innovations in design or execution
- The judges may wish to take into account the research strategy that led to the development of the temporary works solution.
- Where relevant, judges will reward the use of recycled material or energy saving.
- Use of products developed or manufactured by overseas companies are permitted, provided there was significant UK involvement in the design or refinement of the installation strategy.
