Temporary Works Awards - Civil Engineering and Building categories: Sponsored by TWF

TWF

Temporary works are a key element of most projects. They are not only safety critical, but also represent a significant element of the overall cost. Effective solutions require considerable skill and ingenuity.

Historically, this aspect of projects has not had the publicity it deserves. The Temporary Works Forum (TWF) is therefore very pleased to be the instigator of the Temporary Works Award category, featuring for the first time in 2014.

The TWF was formed in 2009 and is open to any organisation in the industry with an interest in the subject. Its aim is to raise standards and to support industry. It is a vibrant group, with broad cross-industry membership. Matters of interest and concern are debated; industry guidance is produced; and influencers and regulators are lobbied to allow the voice of temporary works to be heard. The forum is consulted by others in recognition of its authoritative standing.

The BCI Awards are important to the aims of the TWF,  specifically to reward and highlight best practice in its widest sense. The awards are a fitting vehicle for this, given their established position in the construction industry calendar.

The BCI Awards recognise temporary work in two ways: firstly, by requiring all entries to give explicit consideration to this aspect in their submissions, and secondly, as specific award categories in their own right. The number of entries in the latter has confirmed the wide interest in temporary works.
