Waldeck are delighted to announce that we are finalists at this years’ Building Innovation Awards, making it the third year in a row the team have been shortlisted.

The awards recognise and celebrate the pioneering individuals, organisations and partnerships that are embracing emerging technologies and digital transformation in order to take UK construction to the next level.

This year, the team have been shortlisted in the ‘Best Asset Management Innovation’ category, for our on-going programme of work with Network Rail’s R&D team, Routes and University Partners – Nottingham Trent and Birmingham City.

Digitalisation is already shaping the built environment and the potential application of technologies such as BIM, AI, the Internet of Things and robotic automation go far beyond the design and build stage to the long-term management of the asset.

Waldeck work closely with clients to use technologies with a whole lifecycle approach in mind, harnessing data to provide genuine value, better processes and behaviours, and ultimately better outcomes for clients.

Veronica Ruby-Lewis, Associate Director at Waldeck shared:

“This shortlist follows on from our award win at the last years’ Building Innovation Awards for our work with Network Rail, and is credit to the continued evolution of our work to digitalise their approach to asset condition inspections.

“The solution has been developed to provide holistic and lifecycle benefits, seeing the data supporting informed decision making for asset care over the entirety of its lifecycle, as well as supporting Network Rail’s ambition to create a Digital Railway.”

The project has already accumulated several industry awards shortlists and wins, including previous Building Innovation Awards, ICE East Midlands Merit Awards, Made in the Midlands Awards.

Organised by UK Business Events, the Building Innovation Awards are an occasion to recognise and celebrate the individuals, organisations and partnerships that are taking UK construction to the next level.

The awards will be presented at a gala dinner and ceremony on 12th October at Kimpton Clocktower Hotel, Manchester.
