About the awards

Welcome to the International Outstanding Achievement Awards (IOAA), a unique new competition that spans the disciplines of the built environment sector. Encompassing fields as diverse as procurement, conservation, design, facilities, and health and safety management, these awards set out to discover the hidden heroes within project teams: those who have made an outstanding contribution and changed things for the better.



The International Outstanding Achievement Awards are run by the Chartered Institute of Building, an organisation dedicated to defining and raising standards within the built environment sector. Entries are welcome from individuals of any size of organisation, from any country in the world. You do not have to be a CIOB member to participate.

The next International Outstanding Achievement Awards will also reflect the diversity of disciplines and expertise of specialist managers within the built environment sector.
