Judging process

The judging process.

The judging process for the Constructing Excellence SECBE Awards is taken very seriously. Our judges have a passion for the principles and themes of these construction awards and demonstrate exceptional leadership ability and vision. We hold our judges to the highest standards of fairness, accuracy and integrity.

We have two rounds of judging:

  1. Shortlisting is based on the written submission. Every entry is evaluated with a discerning eye towards fulfillment of the category criteria and the impacts described.

  2. Those shortlisted, our finalists, are then invited to give a short presentation to one of our six judging panels on the Judging Day – Thursday 4th April.  See information about judging day below.

Throughout the judging process we make every effort to avoid conflicts of interest and we assign at least four judges to each entry.

The Judging Day

Judging Day – Thursday 4th April 2019
Fladgate, 16 Great Queen Street, London, WC2B 5DG

The judging day is hosted by Fladgate who kindly provide us with a suite of offices in which to run our interviews.

We have 15 categories with the potential for around 80 presentation teams to be involved on one day. We will have six judging panels comprised of at least four judges who will review two or three categories. It’s always a very busy day. Details of participants in the judging panels will be published soon.

Finalists are allocated a 20 minute slot during the course of the day to convince the judges that their project/organisation/individual is really special. They are invited to give a 10 minute presentation and prepare to spend a further 10 minutes responding to questions.
