Tideway, Northern Spire and Headingley among BCIA frontrunners.
The wait is over. The shortlist for this year’s British Construction Industry Awards (BCIA) has been revealed.
Tideway’s More by the river project, the completion of the Northern Spire bridge over the River Wear in Sunderland (pictured above) and work on Headingley stadium are all noteworthy projects to make the shortlist.
A total of six nominations also go to different projects on the A14 upgrade, while HS2 enabling works, the completion of the V&A museum in Dundee, and Coal Drops Yard in London are also up for gongs.
Once again, the best of the best construction projects will be identified following a rigorous process of judging visits, with the winners announced at a gala celebration evening in October.
The Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Initiative of the Year award has been created as a new category for 2019, with a total of 19 gongs up for grabs.
New Civil Engineer editor Mark Hansford said this year’s entries show the range of “incredible” projects that the industry has been working on.
“It's great to see such a wide range of projects on this year’s shortlist,” Hansford said.
“From work on mega projects such as HS2 and Tideway to smaller schemes such as strengthening work on the Nene Viaduct, everyone on the shortlist deserves special praise.”
