Award types

In order to achieve a CEEQUAL Award, the project team (or whom ever is leading the CEEQUAL Assessment: Client, Designer or Contractor) will need to first choose the type of Award they would like to achieve and then choose what Assessment they would like to use in order to reach their Award.

Both the Award type and Assessment type will be stated on the final Award certificate.

Projects

There are six Award types available under CEEQUAL for Projects (both UK & Ireland and International schemes):

  • Whole Team Award (formerly Whole Project Award)
    The full CEEQUAL Award applied jointly by the client, designer, and principal contractor(s).
  • Interim Client & Design Award
    Only available en route to a Whole Team Award. This enables project teams to add a verified Assessment during the design stage of a Whole Team Award. The stage in the design process at which the Interim Assessment is undertaken can be chosen by the applicant to best suit their needs and procurement process. The client and designer can then secure recognition for their contribution to the project at this early stage on their way to a Whole Team Award, and an Interim Client & Design Award can even be applied for before the contractor is appointed. The benefit of an Interim Award is that the applicant can decide how far through the design they wish the verified Assessment to take place. In this circumstance, the Interim Award is superseded once the project is finished and the Whole Team Award completed.
  • Client & Design Award
    Joint application by the client and designer. This can be achieved before construction has started and can be applied for in a situation where approval for the construction stage has not yet been secured, or where the contractor does not wish to participate in a Whole Team Award.
  • Design Award
    Principal designer(s) only. This can be useful to enable the designer to secure experience of CEEQUAL without the involvement of the other parties to the project, or where the designer wishes to gain recognition for their contribution to a project when the client and contractor do not wish to participate.
  • Design & Construction Award
    Joint application by the contractor and their designer. This can be useful where the designer and contractor wish to gain recognition for their contribution to a project but the client does not wish to participate.
  • Construction Award
    Principal contractor(s) only. This is useful to enable the contractor to secure experience of CEEQUAL without the involvement of the other parties to the contract, or where the contractor wishes to gain recognition for their contribution to a project when the client and designer to do not wish to participate.

Using CEEQUAL for large, complicated and long duration projects/programmes 

On large and complicated projects, it can be impractical to assess the scheme as just one single project. In such a case multi-package assessments can be applied for. This enables separate CEEQUAL assessments of individual packages of works to be completed. The individual package scores are then aggregated on the basis of the individual package contract values to give an overall Whole Team Award for the project or programme.

Term Contracts

There are two Award types available under CEEQUAL for Term Contracts:

  • Whole Team Award & Assessment
    Available for use when the client mandates the use of CEEQUAL on a contract. Under this award Section 1: Client Contract Strategy is mandatory and the contract is assessed using Sections 1 to 9.
  • Delivery Award & Assessment
    Available for where the contractor(s) and designer(s) making up the contract delivery team wish to use CEEQUAL to assess their performance without the direct instruction or involvement of the Client. With this award, Section 1: Client Contract Strategy is omitted from the assessment and the delivery team assess their performance only against Sections 2 to 9.
