Alliance Award

The 2021 award programme has now been launched; please find information on how to enter the free international Construction Project Management award programme below.

The “Alliance Award” is given to those projects that demonstrate excellence in undertaking construction project management and this award is evaluated using the 8 principles of “the better way.” These are:

  • People who believe that working together makes all of us more effective

  • Processes fostering co-operation instead of confrontation

  • Contracts fair, clean and simple, contract management in mutual respect

  • Costs, transparent and competitive, reasonable profit for all

  • Quality as our prime goal at a price that is acceptable to all

  • Life cycle, sustainable projects, designed with all phases in mind

  • Time, target dates set professionally, reasonably and jointly.

  • Challenges, identified and solved in joint responsibility
