Deadline draws near for the CIBSE Building Performance Awards 2020

Entries are now invited for the 2020 CIBSE Building Performance Awards.

The Awards showcase the highest achievements in building performance across the construction and property industry, and are the only awards in the built environment sector that are judged on actual, in-use performance rather than projections or designed performance.

The 2020 Awards focus on all aspects of a project, product or innovation, looking for the delivery of safe, healthy, functional and sustainable buildings which operate efficiently and meet users needs.

Entry to the awards is free, with streamlined entry forms for 2020 to make it easier to enter.

For the first time, the Product and Innovation category will include an Award to recognise new products and innovations that make a significant contribution to the wellbeing or thermal comfort elements of building performance. This can include solutions in the areas of lighting, acoustics, air quality and renewables for wellbeing, and solutions covering heating, ventilation, cooling and humidification for thermal comfort.

Facilities Management Category
This Award recognises and celebrates the achievements of a Facilities Management (FM) team or project, whether in-house or outsourced, which delivers outstanding building performance from an individual building, a site with several buildings or a portfolio of assets. FM is vital in making buildings work and improving performance in terms of user satisfaction and comfort, energy and carbon, health and wellbeing and whole life value.

Entries in this category are welcome from UK based or international FM teams and should cover a full year of facilities management activity, supported by operational performance data during the period 1 September 2017 to 31 August 2019.

Judging Criteria
The judges will look for entries which are accompanied by thorough evidence of measured building performance such as:

 Details of the Facilities Management Team or project it’s approach to building performance.

 Challenges, or constraints and how these were addressed in the initiative.

Effective collaboration in your team or project highlighting the techniques and processes you have found to support successful collaboration.

 How you have acquired, developed and transferred knowledge and experience of delivering building performance within your FM team or project.

 Examples of any significant innovation from the FM team or project.

 Examples of the feedback you collected and explain how this was acted upon to improve operations.

 Evidence of client and occupant satisfaction with the FM team or project and testimonials from the parties involved.
