This is how you win Construction Story of the Year
WE'RE looking for some of the most inspiring and innovative construction stories across the globe that perhaps haven’t gotten the attention they deserve.
One lucky winner will have their story shared across all our social media channels, gaining exposure on the world’s largest, most subscribed-to (and pretty much best) video channel for construction.
We will also introduce you to leading construction firms, feature you in an article published on The B1M and Built: The Bluebeam Blog, and invite you to speak at our digital and live events.
It's an incredible opportunity to share your project with the world, and we’re going to tell you how to win.
1. Tell us about the community impact
We want to hear how this affected the people around you, whether that’s because it saved a site time or money, allowed people from underrepresented backgrounds to join the AEC sector, or created opportunities where there weren't before.
Even if your project is in its infancy or pilot stage we want to hear about its potential. How will your project or idea promote positive change?
Above: Tell us how your idea will promote positive change in construction.
2. It doesn’t have to be an essay
Don’t worry, we’re not looking for a thesis. Keep your responses short and to the point. Tell us why you deserve to win.
3. Don’t forget the materials
We want to see what you’ve been working so hard on! Get creative, we’re accepting photos, videos or any other multimedia. We want to be able to share your idea with as many people as possible and a key part of that is visuals.
4. Surprise us
As cliche as it may sound, think outside the box. If you have passion and know your idea can have an impact on the world, we want to see it.
Above: We've left the scope wide because we want to hear from everyone.
5. No entry is too small
We also might surprise you. We want to see every entry, no matter the size. A community impact doesn’t have to mean an entire city or an entire country.
So what are you waiting for? Nominate yourself or someone you know. We’ve made the scope wide because we want to hear from as many people as possible.
Show us how you want to change the world of construction, we’re ready and waiting.
Entries are now open and the deadline has now been extended to 10 September.
Submissions will be judged by a world-class panel that includes superstar engineer and TV presenter Yewande Akinola MBE, Microsoft’s Salla Eckhart, Hassell Studio’s Xavier De Kestelier, Nemetschek’s Don Jacob and Virgin Hyperloop’s Sara Luchian - the first woman ever to ride on a hyperloop system.
