Does your company deserve to be in the spotlight? Perhaps a fellow colleague deserves some extra recognition after exceeding expectations on a project? Don’t miss the chance to put your company on the map by entering the illustrious 2020 BCIA Awards. Don’t delay as time is running out – the deadline for entries is Friday 20 December 2019.

The Awards are free to enter and you can enter more than one category. An independent expert panel of judges using clearly defined criteria will analyse all entries to ensure it is a fair and stringent process for all.

There are nine categories up for grabs this year including a brand-new Smart Buildings accolade which will be awarded to a manufacturer, installer or team in recognition of a project which demonstrates how smart technology has been used to enhance the user experience in a building or building complex.

Other popular categories include Building Controls and BEMS Installer of the Year, Technical Innovation of the Year – Projects, Energy Management Award, Best Service & Maintenance Provider, Contribution to Training Award and Technical Innovation of the Year – Products. Individuals also get their chance to be celebrated with the Engineer of the Year Award and the Young Engineer of the Year accolade (for those 35 and under).

The entry process is quick and simple as it is done online via the BCIA website. If you are looking to gain exposure for your business, being named a finalist or winner confirms your capabilities to a very wide audience and more importantly shows that you are at the top of your game. Don’t let your hard-earned success go unnoticed, the Awards present a unique opportunity for companies, engineers and products to be recognised in a growing and dynamic industry.

BCIA president Jon Belfield said: “By showcasing and celebrating examples of excellence, we raise the bar yet again in the exciting and growing sector of building automation. The BCIA Awards not only provide a massive boost for any team or individual, but they are integral to increasing our professional standards, business opportunities and gaining unique publicity.
