For this year's British Construction Industry Awards, ICE and New Civil Engineer have come together with the Infrastructure and Projects Authority (IPA) to announce a new award category that you can enter the Outstanding Contribution to the Covid-19 Response.
And now the entry deadline has been extended so you now have two more weeks to put together your strongest possible entry. Submit your entry by Friday 28 August, and you and your team could also make it through to this year's shortlist.
This special category for 2020 celebrates the innovation and ingenuity demonstrated by the construction industry to develop initiatives and solutions to keep the sector operating safely during the Covid-19 pandemic. It will also shine a light on businesses in the built environment that supported the work of the NHS with a variety of roles from construction of the Nightingale hospitals through to the supply of PPE.
Whether your business has developed new approaches to allow greater remote working and improve collaboration or implemented new health and safety safeguarding to enable work to continue on-site, this new category will also highlight your efforts.
Start writing today, remember you do not have to submit right away but you can start putting together your strongest possible entry to increase your chances of making it through to the shortlist and becoming one of this year’s winners.
