The annual prizes recognise and encourage innovative contributions to research on current industry issues by students and professionals across a range of fields.
The Undergraduate Dissertation Award went to University College London student Hussain Chuzari for his dissertation focusing on skills shortages in the UK construction industry.
Carl Ferguson from University of Wolverhampton scooped the first prize for the Master's dissertation category with his work 'Road Recycling: A Sustainable Construction Solution for the UK Highways Sector'.
Congratulating the winners, Chair of the CIOB Judging Panel, Alan Crane, said: "Each year the quantity and standard of entries to our Innovation and Research Awards increases and entries have been submitted from across the globe."
He continued: "The entries this year have addressed some topical issues and generated some interesting solutions for the construction industry."
The annual Innovation Competition Award went to Brian Kilgallon and Kevin Lee for their work 'Project Bank Accounts' which focused on key recommendations from the 'Constructing the Team' report written by Michael Latham.
New for this year was the International Construction Project Management Association Award. The eventual winners, Dr Dongping Fang, Dr Martin Loosemoore, Dr Difei Zhu and Dr Patrick Zou (from Tsinghua University, China, and The University of New South Wales, Australia) took the prize for developing an enterprise risk management strategy for Olympic venue construction projects.
