Team of the Year Award
This award recognises project teams that are driving development and adoption of innovation and technology in the civil engineering industry. We are looking for teams that work collaboratively and share their learning with their peers.
These teams could be from within a single company. Equally entries from project teams, joint ventures or collaborations are welcomed.
The success of the team should be demonstrated with reference to recent involvement in a civil engineering project or programme. The project or programme need not be complete, but it should be possible to demonstrate how the team has developed and used technology to improve team performance. The project or programme could be a research project, a design-only project, a construction project or an ongoing operations and maintenance programme.
You could have developed your own innovations and technologies, or adopted others, but either way you should be able to demonstrate a structured approach to R&D and innovation. You would certainly have a dedicated innovation team and/or champion and there should be evidence of how the entire project team is or was engaged with their work.
Submission details (max 600 words in total plus 5MB file size)
- The entry should begin with an introductory paragraph (100 words max) which summarises why the team should be considered for the award.
- This should then be followed by a fuller description of the team covering its purpose, the team’s approach to RD&I, and specifically answer the following questions:
- How is the team structured to maximise the potential for innovation?
- Who is ultimately responsible for driving innovation and how are they accountable?
- What specific innovations have been brought to the fore by the team in the last 18 months?
- How does this team’s work have the potential to change the design, construction, maintenance or operation of infrastructure for the better?
- How is this team working collaboratively with the industry supply chain, and how is it sharing its learnings with other peers? What industry bodies/research forums are you working with/collaborating with/sharing with?
Shortlisted candidates will present to our panel of judges.
Supporting evidence can include video content, up to three images: photographs as jpgs; CGIs and artist’s impressions; or clearly marked up design drawings or pdfs of relevant and tailored presentation slides.
