Bluebeam and The B1M have launched the Construction Story of the Year award to shine a spotlight on the people and projects that have made a uniquely positive impact on the industry.
The B1M, in partnership with Bluebeam, has launched a submission website and is currently accepting entries from individuals with stories about innovative approaches, from technological problem-solving to sustainable innovations, the use of eco-friendly materials, addressing crises like climate change and the housing shortage, or describing programs designed to improve diversity and inclusion on site.
Founding team member of Bluebeam Don Jacob said behind every build project is a story: unexpected problems, clever solutions and challenges that are overcome in the end.
“The trouble is, we rarely get to hear about them. This is a great opportunity to share those stories and show what it takes to create those transformative endeavours that shape our world,” Jacob said.
The B1M Founder and Managing Director, Fred Mills said the construction industry doesn’t tend to brag about itself.

“Most people don’t really understand this important sector and what it can achieve,” Mills said.
“Engineers, architects, construction managers, urban planners and all kinds of other people in this industry are working tirelessly to make our world a better place. These stories deserve to be celebrated.”
Entries are open until Friday, 3 September 2021. Finalists will be selected by a panel of industry experts, and the winner will be announced during a live event on 27 October 2021.
The winner will be featured in an extended interview and documentary with The B1M’s Fred Mills and have their story promoted through The B1M and Bluebeam’s platforms, live speaking opportunities at The B1M events and a commemorative trophy.
