CEEQUAL: The Civil Engineering Environmental Quality Assessment & Award Scheme
CEEQUAL is a system used for the assessment, rating, and awarding of civil engineering, infrastructure, landscaping works in public spaces. It aims to assist clients, designers, and contractors to deliver improved sustainability performance and strategy for a project or contract, in order to achieve distinctive environmental and social performance in their work.
To assess the sustainability of civil engineering, infrastructure, landscaping and public realm projects (including the infrastructure associated with building developments).
Project Strategy Project Management, People and Communities, Land Use and Landscape, The Historic Environment, Ecology and Biodiversity, Water Environment ,Physical Resources Use and Management Transport
The fee payable to CEEQUAL is based on the total construction value of the project or if applying early in the process then on the client’s or engineer’s estimates of that construction value.
CEEQUAL uses a self-assessment process in which CEEQUAL trained-Assessors assess project or contract strategy and performance on a range of environmental and social issues arranged in nine sections. Upon completion of each assessment, it gets externally verified by a CEEQUAL-appointed Verifier, and then ratified by the Scheme Management Team. Assessors use the appropriate CEEQUAL Manual to score performance against questions relevant to their project or contract. Assessors must do this by collecting evidence to support their scores for each question, using our Online Assessment Tool for capturing those scores and evidence commentary. Once the Assessment score is ratified, the project or contract team is granted an Award based on the percentage score achieved.
Kind of projects targeted
A performance assessment that can influence project or contract team decisions as they develop, design, and construct their work.
