Best performing buildings shortlist confirmed

Three innovative schemes that have made the shortlist for the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) Building Performance Awards 2020 include the Graphene Engineering Innovation Centre, Manchester, The Sweco Building, Bergen, Norway, and the Hitchcock Centre for the Environment, Amherst, USA.

The Graphene Engineering Innovation Centre entered by Balfour Beatty Kilpatrick in the Commercial Project category.

Now in their 30th year, these annual awards recognise the projects, teams, individuals, products, innovations and initiatives that demonstrate engineering excellence in the built environment.

Fundamental to the project categories is evidence of performance in operation: these are the only built environment awards to focus on the actual, in-use measured performance of completed projects rather than just on design intent.

The 14 awards include two new categories for emerging priorities in the sector: Project of the Year - Retrofit; and Product or Innovation - Well-being. These reflect the importance of improving the safety, comfort and overall performance of existing buildings and also acknowledge the growing interest in the impact buildings can have on occupants' physical and mental well-being.

The awards are judged by a diverse panel of experts and industry leaders from within the built environment. The quality of entries submitted this year made the judges' task of arriving at a shortlist particularly challenging for some categories.

Hywel Davies, technical director at CIBSE chaired the judging. He said: “There were many excellent submissions this year; all of those who made the shortlist, either as individuals or as part of a team, should be justly proud of their contribution to improving building performance.”

The winners will be announced on February 11, 2020 at the awards event.
