UK & Ireland Projects

Using more than ten years experience of industry practice, CEEQUAL for UK & Ireland Projects has been specifically created for the assessment of civil engineering, infrastructure, landscaping and public realm projects (including the infrastructure associated with building developments) in the UK and Ireland. It presents Version 5 of the CEEQUAL Methodology, and its nine section structure, in a UK and Irish context.

Let’s get started…

In order to achieve a CEEQUAL Award, the project team (or whomever 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.

M25-Section-1y-1 M25-Section-4b-1

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

1. Choosing your Award type:

There are six types of Award available, one for the whole project team, four for parts of the team where not all project partners can take part or where individual members of the team would like to have their own role assessed and recognised separately, and one interim award for clients and designers:

  • Whole Team Award (formerly Whole Project Award) – the full CEEQUAL Award applied jointly by the client, designer and principal contractor(s)

  • Client & Design Award – for a joint application by the client and designer

  • Design Award – for principal designer(s) only

  • Design & Construction Award – for a joint application by the contractor and their designer

  • Construction Award – for principal contractor(s) only

  • Interim Client & Design Award – available en route to a Whole Team Award.

2. Choosing your Assessment type:

Currently, CEEQUAL Assessments for Projects (both UK & Ireland, or Internationally-based) are available under Version 5 of the overarching methodology. Version 5 completed the transition of CEEQUAL as an environmental assessment and awards scheme (Version 4) to a sustainability assessment and awards scheme. Due to the vast difference between Version 4 to Version 5, CEEQUAL is offering two types of Assessments for project teams to achieve a CEEQUAL Award:

  • Sustainability Strategy & Performance Assessment (assessing to Sections 1-9)
  • Sustainability Performance Assessment (assessing to Sections 2-9).

The difference between the two available Assessments is whether the project team would wish to assess their project using the newly added ‘Project Strategy’ section included for the first time as part of Version 5.

The Project Strategy section (which is optional) assesses how the project team has related their project to the wider sustainability agenda surrounding civil engineering and infrastructure projects, and their contribution to ‘sustainable development’. Click here to learn more.

3. Feescales

The fee payable to CEEQUAL is based on the total construction value of the project or, if applying early in the process, on the client’s or engineer’s estimate of that construction value.

4. Do you have a large or complex project?

For large or complex, multi-package projects, it is possible to undertake separate assessments at the package or sub-project level in a way that enables them to be given individual package scores and for those scores to aggregated into an overall score for the whole project.

To explore this option email enquiries@ceequal.com or call Roger Venables (+44 (0) 333 014 7880) or Ian Nicholson (+44 (0) 1509 363101) to discuss the options available and the associated fees.
