Projects outside the UK and Ireland can now be assessed under Ceequal, the assessment and awards scheme for improving sustainability in civil engineering.
Ceequal’s UK Scheme is already used on more than £16bn worth of projects in the UK. The Ceequal Management Team has also helped to develop similar schemes in the United States and Australia.
The international scheme means projects can be assessed wherever there is demand. It is of particular interest for existing users with international operations, including Halcrow and Aecom.
“Ceequal International was created in response to a desire by UK users with international interests to use the assessment methodology and its beneficial influence on performance in their projects outside the UK,” said Ceequal chief executive Roger Venables.
“The resulting Assessment Manual for International Projects is applicable anywhere in the world.”
Venables said interest is particularly strong in the Gulf states, Eastern Europe and South East Asia. Based on the same principles as its UK counterpart, Ceequal International is a self-assessment and evidence-based scheme undertaken by a trained Ceequal assessor − usually a member of the project team − based on an initial weighting exercise specific to the local area.
