This award aims to recognise the top engineering projects in Ireland and the teams that drive them. If you can demonstrate technical excellence and engineering innovation through a building project of any type or size that has been completed within the last 12 months, then this is the award for you. Applications must either be made by the project engineer (individual, firm, or department), or a project collaborator but only if submitted jointly with the project engineer as we can only accept one submission per project. This award is not open to fit out, refurbishment or interior architecture projects.

Entry is by a 5-page A4 PDF submission; the judges will be looking for a clear plan and evidence that it is delivering on core objectives, paying attention to the criteria listed below.

  • Background: Please outline your career background or your organisation's background, and provide context for the engineering project you are submitting for consideration.

  • Excellence: How did you approach the engineering project and ensure excellence in its design and execution? What engineering processes and technologies were used to ensure fitness for purpose and meet all relevant standards and regulations? What made this engineering project stand out from others in its field?
  • Challenges: Please highlight any challenges faced in the course of the engineering project, such as technical or logistical difficulties, and describe how they were overcome.
  • Impact: What positive impact has the engineering project had on the community or industry it serves? What steps were taken to ensure that the project adhered to sustainability best practices? How has the engineering project contributed to the advancement of its field or addressed a significant challenge or opportunity? How does it stand to impact the future of engineering and related industries?
