Constructing Excellence Wales, Exemplar Awards Winner 2011

 

What is the Exemplar Programme?

Building on the success of the Demonstration Project Programme, the Exemplar Programme combines the core principles of Rethinking Construction and the Low/Zero Carbon Sustainable Construction Agenda in an exciting new initiative.

An ‘Exemplar’ is defined as ‘something worthy of being imitated or copied’ and this is exactly what we are seeking to achieve with this programme.  The Exemplars are intended to be good practical examples of how to achieve Best Value Sustainable Construction solutions.

The purpose of the Exemplar programme is to identify what actions have taken place at key stages of a project that has led to a successful outcome, so that this learning can be adopted on other projects. Each stage will use industry standard metrics to back up and support the description of what was done.  All aspects of sustainability and construction best practice will be taken into consideration, including economic, social and environmental factors, to ensure that the exemplars on the programme deliver a good all-round project that does not sacrifice one aspect for the sake of another.
