Let’s get started…

Using CEEQUAL Version 5, the project team (or whom ever is leading the CEEQUAL Assessment: Client, Designer or Contractor) first need to 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.

1. Choosing your Award type

There are six Award types available in CEEQUAL Version 5 for Projects, 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

There are two Assessment types available using CEEQUAL Version 5 for Projects:

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

The difference between the two available Assessment types is whether the project team would wish to assess their project using the optional Project Strategy section included for the first time as part of Version 5.

The Project Strategy section 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’. Learn more about the Project Strategy section.

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, please contact us to discuss the options available and the associated fees.
