This award aims to recognise the best projects in Ireland delivered through offsite and other modern methods projects, and the teams that drive them. If you can demonstrate construction innovation, technical excellence and the use of offsite or other modern methods of construction on 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 can be made by the project owner/procurer, the design team, the manufacturer or any of the project delivery partners, including specialist component suppliers, but only if submitted jointly as we can only accept one submission per project.
Entry is by a 5 A4 page submission; the judges will be looking for clear information, backed up by evidence, that pays particular 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.
Project: Describe in detail the type of offsite or other modern methods of construction used in the project, including MMC category, sector, size, scope, timeline, budget, and any green ratings or sustainable features. Include photos and any relevant technical documentation or schematics.
Excellence: How did you approach the MMC aspects of the project (was the project designed for MMC delivery?) and ensure excellence in its design and execution? What mix of MMC 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 delivery, such as technical or logistical difficulties, and describe how they were overcome.
Impact: What positive impact has the project had on the community or industry it serves? What steps were taken to ensure that the project adhered to sustainability best practices?
