All entries are judged by a panel of two judges made up of a commercial contractor and one other experienced member of the construction industry e.g.  architect/QS/engineer etc.

Entries will be scrutineered prior to judging to confirm their category and that they meet the Terms and Conditions. 
The judging process consists of a site visit including an interview with at least three members of the project team including:

  • The construction company
  • The owner
  • One consulting project partner

NOTE: It is the entire project and its team that are being judged, not just the entrant.

The judging criteria is based on four components:

  1. Design
  2. Contract Management
  3. Construction/Delivery of Project/Outcome
  4. Overall Assessment

There is no limit to the number of Gold, Silver and Bronze Awards given in each category.

The highest scoring award in each category shall be the National Category Winner provided they have received a Gold Award.

The Supreme Award Winner is the National Category Winner with the highest points.
