It’s no mean feat winning a Construction Manager of the Year Award.
Candidates first have to be nominated by their employers, clients, or a project’s consultants, and must themselves submit a 1,500 word project report. A judging panel for each of the 10 categories, comprising four CIOB members or fellows, then visits every project in that category.
Visits consist of interviews with the candidate, discussions with other project staff and a tour of the site. Candidates are scored according to their responses to set questions.
The judges then meet to agree which candidate has been most impressive in each category. Finally, the chairman of the 10 panels decides on the overall winner.
