BCIA judges start to sift 27 hopeful finalists


JUDGING FOR the British Construction Industry Awards 2004 begins in earnest this week, with judges kicking off a national tour of each of the 27 schemes shortlisted across six main categories.

The shortlist was whittled down from a record 225 entries.

Judges, led by Network Rail chief executive John Armitt, will now interrogate the whole project team to determine which projects truly shine.

Each short listed project will then also be considered, as appropriate, for the Local Authority Award sponsored by May Gurney; the Environmental Award sponsored by Atkins, the Regeneration Award sponsored by Gifford & Partners and the Best Practice Award sponsored by Skanska.

An Arup-sponsored Judges' Special Award will also be made to the project that turned the judges' heads.

All publicly funded projects are eligible for the Prime Minister's Better Public Building Award sponsored by the Commission for the Built Environment and the Office of Government Commerce. The short list for this award will be announced separately on 6 July.

The winners will be revealed at a gala dinner at the Grosvenor in London on 28 October.
