£15.2 Billion worth of BCI award-winning projects built on NEC contracts
NEC contracts underpinned projects worth a total of more than £15.2bn at this year’s British Construction Industry Awards (BCI Awards), reaffirming the suite’s reputation as a bedrock of UK built environment success.
 
More than 1100 of the industry elite recently gathered at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London to celebrate the UK projects that exemplify construction and engineering excellence over the past 12 months. 
 
The combined total value of the 16 winning schemes stands at nearly £16.9bn, with the six winning projects using NEC representing £15.2bn. The prize-winners included three schemes, of hugely diverse sizes, which used the NEC3 Engineering and Construction Contract (ECC) option C, reinforcing the format’s popularity, simplicity and suitability for a wide range of projects.
 
This year, Transport for London’s flagship £14.8bn Crossrail scheme, on which all tier 1 contracts have been let under the NEC3 Engineering and Construction Contract (ECC) option C, won the BIM Project Application Award - Civil Engineering.
 
In addition, the £250m Crossrail Liverpool Street and Whitechapel Station Tunnels project, which is being built by BBMV joint venture, received the Product Design Innovation Award - Civil Engineering.
 
On the building front,  the ECC-based Procure 21+ NHS procurement framework won the Production Design Innovation Award - Building for its ‘repeatable rooms’ concept, which have already been adopted in 18 NHS trust hospital projects in England totalling over £100m.
 
The Project Management Award went to the £252m Center Parks Woburn Forest holiday village development, where project manager Edmond Shipway used ECC to procure the main infrastructure works.
