2018 Awards Shortlist Announced
Posted: 22 November 2017
The Aquatics Centre on the Queen Elizabeth Park, London; a Healthy Office in Warsaw, Poland; and Tower 3 in Melbourne Australia are just some of the buildings to have been shortlisted for the CIBSE Building Performance Awards 2018.
Now in their eleventh year, the Awards recognise the teams, products, innovations, initiatives and projects that demonstrate engineering excellence in the built environment. And they are the only industry Awards that focus on actual, measured performance, rather than design intent or performance specifications.
This year also saw the introduction of a new Learning and Development category to the awards, attracting a varied and interesting range of excellent entries, illustrating the thirst for learning in the sector.
That was not the only category to spark lively debate between the judges on the 15-strong panel, chaired by Hywel Davies, a veteran of the process. He noted that the discussions were “some of the most lively and vigorous” he had seen during the judging process.
With a wide range of high quality entries, the shortlisting decisions were reached only after considerable debate and careful scrutiny of the entries, and Davies said that “all those on the shortlist have demonstrated a significant contribution.
All of which means that the competition for awards is wide open in 2018 and the results will be eagerly anticipated before their announcement at the Awards dinner event on 6 February 2018 at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.
