Terry Sharp, president of the BCIA, said: β€œIt is fantastic to see that despite all the difficulties of last year we have once again received a record breaking number of entries for the BCIA Awards. Many discussions I have had with industry colleagues have centred around how the effects of lockdown could change how we manage our built environment in the longer term. The standard of entries received has shown how our members have remained as innovative and forward-thinking as ever and it will be fascinating to see who takes home the prizes in September.”

The 2021 Awards will be held on Thursday 9th September 2021, at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole. For further details please contact Hayley Hopkins on:
