CEEQUAL Awards are gained by projects and contracts that have been assessed against detailed and specific environmental and social criteria (CEEQUAL Methodology) by a CEEQUAL-trained Assessor and then verified by a CEEQUAL-appointed Verifier.
Award Certificates are normally officially presented to recipients by a CEEQUAL representative in one of many ways; at a CEEQUAL event, at an Institution of Civil Engineers regional or annual event, on site, or at any internal project or company event. Melanie Manton will email the Assessor a draft version of the Award to finalise the certificate before framing for presentation.
Types of Awards
There are 6 Awards available for the assessment of Projects and 1 award for assessment of Term Contracts.
Levels of achievement
CEEQUAL’s Methodology assesses the extent to which the project or contract team has exceeded the statutory and regulatory minima. The Award thresholds, based on the maximum possible score for the work, as scoped by the Assessor and Verifier, are:
- more than 25% - Pass
- more than 40% - Good
- more than 60% - Very Good
- more than 75% - Excellent (with the actual score being given on the Award Certificate)
For Term Contracts, the scores are given only as a percentage until the final year when the final grade is also given.
The different levels of Awards should not be seen as inferior to each other when comparing a ‘Pass’ to an ‘Excellent’, for example, as they are both beyond the legal minimum of environmental and social performance in the industry. Also some levels of achievement may be unreachable with certain types of projects.
It is not possible to achieve a 100% score due to conflicting environmental or social issues in the assessment.
If you, or members of the Project Team, wish to have a CEEQUAL Award presented following a completed CEEQUAL Assessment please contact the CEEQUAL Team on +44 (0) 333 014 7880.
