CEEQUAL has been developed in collaboration with a number of industry organisations since its inception. CEEQUAL is now operating alongside BREEAM as part of the BRE Group and continues to collaborate and consult with many industry partners.
Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE)
The idea for CEEQUAL was born at a meeting of the ICE’s Environment & Sustainability Board in 1999 and the ICE supported CEEQUAL through the feasibility study and development stage via its Research & Development Enabling Fund.
The Institution became one of CEEQUAL’s main shareholders remains a key partner in the Scheme. All CEEQUAL certificates carry the ICE crest alongside the CEEQUAL logo and are signed not only by CEEQUAL’s Chairman but also by the ICE President.
Association for Consultancy and Engineering (ACE)
As the organisation representing the collective views and business interests of the consultancy and engineering industry in the UK, the ACE was one of the organisations represented on the Project Advisory Group during the development of the CEEQUAL assessment methodology and Manual.
ACE is the leading business association in the sector, with around 650 firms employing more than 90,000 large and small, operating across many different disciplines as its members. ACE’s representation and lobbying to government, major clients, the media and other key stakeholders, enables it to promote the critical contribution that engineers and consultants make to the nation’s developing infrastructure.
Civil Engineering Contractors Association (CECA)
CECA, the representative body for civil engineering contractors, was one of CEEQUAL’s development partners and has been promoting the Scheme since its launch in 2003. Peter Crosland, CECA’s Civil Engineering Director is a member of the CEEQUAL Technical Advisory Group and provides liaison between CEEQUAL and CECA.
Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM)
CIWEM, the professional body for water and environmental managers, was one of CEEQUAL’s development partners and has been promoting the Scheme since its launch in 2003. CIWEM is the leading independent Chartered professional body for water and environmental professionals, promoting excellence within the sector.
American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE)
CEEQUAL worked with the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) in 2009 to assist in the development of a US equivalent to CEEQUAL. In partnership with the American Public Works Association and the American Council of Engineering Companies, ASCE launched Version 1.0, for piloting, of a sustainable infrastructure project rating system at the ASCE Annual Conference in Las Vegas in October 2010.
