British Construction Industry Awards 1999

British Construction Industry Awards 1999 attracted a near record entry of 183 projects. This is the second highest since this premier award scheme started 12 years ago and a reflection of the healthy state of the industry.

Exceptionally high quality was the other characteristic of BCIA 1999, especially in the building category. Emotions ran high among the judging team as they struggled to decide which of a cluster of superb projects should be the ultimate winner.

Presentations on the winning projects will be made at a special meeting at the Institution of Civil Engineers in London on 25 November 1999 starting at 5.30pm
