How the awards will be judged
Projects in all sectors are judged based on their contribution to making a positive impact and adding value to society. Criteria covers human, social and environmental impact, as well as collaboration and innovation.
Entries are first assessed regionally, with the judging panel formed of RICS members and associated professionals across property, construction, and architecture.
Winners of the regional awards go forward to compete for recognition at a national level where a national panel will judge each category, with the winner announced at the RICS Grand Final in September 2020.
