Treasury chief to chair BCIA 2000 judges

TREASURY PERMANENT Secretary Sir Andrew Turnbull is to chair next year's British Construction Industry Awards' judging panel.

Sir Andrew, the most powerful civil servant in the Treasury, leads arguably the most heavyweight group of judges in the BCIA's 12-year history.

He is joined by Kvaerner Construction chief executive Keith Clarke, ICE vice president George Fleming, Buro Happold chairman Michael Dickson, Robert McAlpine director William McAlpine and architect John McAslan.

Representing the awards' sponsors will be NCE editor emeritus Mike Winney, Architects' Journal publishing director and Commission for Architecture and Built Environment member Paul Finch, and design management consultant Jane Priestman, from the Daily Telegraph.

The International award will be judged by Scott Wilson chairman Bob McGowan, Bovis director Chris Spackman and Culture Secretary Chris Smith's architectural adviser Bryan Jefferson.

This year's winners were announced by Scottish Secretary John Reid and Housing and Planning minister Nick Raynsford at an awards ceremony in central London yesterday.

The winners were: Mersey Valley processing plant (major project category); Pride Park reclamation, Derby (civil engineering); the Lord's Media Centre (building); Hythe bridge strengthening, Oxford (small project); the Britannia project (best practice); and Stadium Australia, Sydney (International).
