Innovation in Design & Delivery Award
This category recognises projects that are driving the use of innovative methods and smart technologies in the global tunnelling industry. These innovations could be in design or construction and could be technology-led. We will be looking for projects that are examples of how the industry is changing the way that new and existing underground assets are designed, built and operated.
Shortlisted candidates will be interviewed by a panel of our judges in an open session at the Festival and feature in New Civil Engineer so you must be prepared to share your concept to a wide audience.
Entries are free and you are able to enter as many as you see fit, having reviewed the specific category criteria.
Judges will look for:
- Evidence that the concept is genuinely innovative, including evidence of any research and development conducted
- The measurable impact the innovation had on project costs, programme, quality of finished product and/or carbon reduction
- How performance of the innovation was reported and monitored
- How the approach could be repeated elsewhere and act as an exemplary
The project on which the innovation has been deployed need not be complete, but the innovation must have been in development or use between January 2017 and July 2018.
