Prime minister David Cameron has confirmed his commitment to the Prime Minister’s Better Pubic Building Award which is assessed as part of the British Construction Industry Awards.
The Award is sponsored by the Department for Business Innovation and Skills and the Cabinet Office.
The Prime Minister’s Better Public Building Award is for a UK project commissioned by, or on behalf of, central or local government or by a grant-aided organisation.
The award takes account of a particularly wide range of criteria including whole life cost, procurement method, economic and social value, and cost in use, over and above the BCIA general criteria of client satisfaction, safety, and team working.
All publicly funded projects qualifying for the Prime Minister’s Award will be assessed by the judges based on the submissions provided by the shortlisted candidates together with the detailed questionnaires that they have completed and, most importantly, their findings on the judging visits to each project.
The winner of the Prime Minister’s Award will be announced at the British Construction Industry Awards presentation dinner to be held at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London on Wednesday 12 October.
Details of the projects which quality for the Prime Minister’s Award are available on the BCIA website.
