AWD Shortlisted at BCI Awards 2017


Alan White Design are proud to announce that we are shortlisted finalists for the Temporary Works Award at the 2017 British Construction Industry Awards.

We were nominated for our work on the iconic V&A Museum of Design Dundee, where we designed an innovative temporary propping system to support this historic building for over a year, to allow construction to be completed on the double curved concrete walls, internal floors, and roof.

For the esteemed panel of judges, our entry stood out primarily for the social and environmental considerations in our design, with our temporary propping system utilising proprietary equipment to ensure it was fully recyclable, and ensuring the lowest possible carbon footprint on the build. We were also able to keep the design easy to build for onsite sub-contractors Careys Plc, while ensuring the work was completed on time and under budget.


The shortlist was revealed today by event sponsors New Civil Engineer, and includes the biggest names in the construction industry from all across the UK, and some of the most iconic buildings under construction within the last 12 months. The BCI Awards recognise the full spectrum of the construction process from design and construction, through to delivery and social impact, with sponsorship from the Institution of Civil Engineers, and backing from the UK Prime Minister.

We are delighted our work has been recognised by our peers, and we look forward to celebrating with all our fellow finalists at the gala dinner at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London on 11th October, where the winners will be announced.
