Building and Construction Awards - Three shortlists

You wait for award shortlists to come along, and then two three * come at once.
* Edit - I've just noticed, we're up for another Construction News Awards.

It's around a year since the launch of NBS Create and nationalBIMlibrary.com and we're delighted to be finalists at two of the major construction awards this year.

1. BUILDING AWARDS 2013

Building Awards 2013 Finalist

nationalBIMlibrary.com is shortlisted for the "BIM Initiative of the Year" award (sponsored by Autodesk)
This category is open to any organisation that has pioneered new ways of working in a BIM enabled environment to make project design, delivery and operation more effective. Initiatives can include software development, collaborative tools and processes, data mining and management and new ways of working. The initiative must have commenced between September 2011 and November 2012.

2. CONSTRUCTION NEWS AWARDS 2013

http://www.constructionnewsawards.com/shortlist
NBS Create is shortlisted for the "Digital Build Britain" award.
Construction News Awards 2013 is delighted to announce the launch of a new category, the Digital Built Britain Award.  The Digital Built Britain category has been sponsored by CIC to support the Government's BIM Task Group and the Construction Industry Council, and is to reward the greatest digital contribution to growth in the built environment.  It will recognise UK initiatives where the innovative use of data adds efficiencies to the lifecycle of a building during its design, construction or use
So absolutely over the moon. For those wanting to find out more about what we are doing around structured data that feeds into the BIM process please see the blog post below:

nationalBIMlibrary.com is also shortlisted in the "BIM Initiative of the Year" category.
We're up against 4Projects and our Westgate Road neighbours Ryder Architecture (Manchester Town Hall) for this one. So there will be a bit of #BIMGeordie friendly rivalry here.
Edit2 - And one other from the #BIMGeordie family - BIM Technologies for their work with Mace Group on 240 Blackfriars Road.
