Arup Scoops 25th Anniversary Award at British Construction Industry Awards.
Arup has been announced as the winner of the prestigious 25th Anniversary Award at the British Construction Industry (BCI) Awards ceremony on 10th of October.
Recognising excellence in British construction over the last 25 years, this accolade was specifically chosen by the panel of judges and presented to Arup for its involvement in some of the most iconic projects of the 21st century and its commitment to driving forward the UK construction industry.
While the BCI Awards recognise overall team performance in project delivery it is clear that Arup over the last 25 years has been consistently at the heart of the greatest teams in construction. The firm is the outstanding winner of this special 25th anniversary award. Judges’ comments on Arup’s achievement
In addition, Arup picked up the top prize for the Conservation Award for the redevelopment of Kings Cross Station, Regeneration Award for Bradford City Park and The Prime Minister’s Better Public Building Award for UCH Macmillian Cancer Centre in London. Arup was also client advisor on the New Tyne Crossing which picked up the Major Civils Project Award.
This is a truly special achievement for everyone at Arup and it is great to be recognised by the industry and our peers as an exceptional contributor to the British construction industry. By working in close partnership with clients, architects and contractors, we are committed to designing, planning and engineering projects in the built environment that inspires the next generation and acknowledges our aim to shape a better world.
