Major Project of the Year

Over EUR 500 Million

Any underground project in the above-mentioned budget frame and evaluated in terms of safety record, complexity, advance in technology, project challenges and their solutions, and other special circumstances.

Nominations for this category of ITA Tunnelling and Underground Space Awards are projects for which the major civil engineering works* have been completed between 1st March 2021 and 1st April 2024.

Judges will consider project implementation and features that demonstrate:

  • Safety performance with records demonstrating Lost Time Injury Frequency Rates
  • Design and construction innovations developed for and during the project
  • Implementation of sustainable solutions
  • Overall approach to management of construction (methods and schedule) to successfully complete the excavation(s) within plan
  • Development of cost-saving solutions
  • Demonstrated overall Project Owner’s satisfaction with completed work, including quality performance
  • Demonstrate “added value” by all of the above
  • Public/community relations programs to bring public support to the project and mitigation of construction impacts
  • Other interesting features, commercial resolution, etc.

Winning projects will demonstrate the successful completion of projects that inspire others and promote the use of underground space, further enhancing tunnelling and awareness of underground space benefits.

* Major civil engineering works include the underground excavation and support of tunnels, caverns and cut-and-cover structures as applicable to the project.
