Project Excellence Award
The Construction Industry Project Excellence (CIPE) Award (Productivity Award) was established in 2016 by the Construction Users Roundtable (CURT) to recognize project teams for outstanding delivery of capital projects. In creating the award, CURT’s goal is to promote project delivery excellence while standardizing productivity metrics that indicate exceptional performance. After development of a uniform standard is achieved, tracking and improvement initiatives will be developed to incrementally build enhanced, sustainable processes for project delivery.
CURT will recognize exceptional performance in three categories: Projects $50MM or less, Projects greater than $50MM but less than $1Billion, and Projects greater than $1Billion.
