The annual British Construction Industry Awards were held last Wednesday 12th October in The Grosvenor Hotel, London. We were humbled and overwhelmed to be shortlisted for an award, which are regarded as the most prestigious awards across the industry – often referred to as the ‘Oscars of Construction’. This was the 29th year of the BCI Awards which celebrates outstanding project delivery across the industry.

The ‘Application of Technology’ award recognises exemplar projects that lead the field in embracing new technology across the supply chain. BaseStone were shortlisted for their work with the Costain-Skanska Joint Venture at Crossrail’s Paddington site. Using our mobile technology to create as-built redlines and snag simultaneously from the field, a cost-saving of 65% was demonstrated as well as bringing intelligence to the data collected from the construction site. A follow up study championed by Crossrail’s Innovate18 department and led by Crossrail’s Six-Sigma team quantified the productivity gain to be between 55% and 95% per user per month.

Last week we won Highly Commended recognition from the BCIA, the first tech-company ever to do this. A huge congratulations to all those who have supported us and who have been involved, particularly the Costain Skanska JV Paddington team. Special thanks go out to Ben Feltham, Scott Harden and the first engineers to use BaseStone on site – thank you for daring to be innovators!
