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

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.
