2018 BIG Biodiversity Challenge finalists - 1

With the judging for the 2018 BIG Biodiversity Challenge Awards finally behind us – we can honestly say our judges had to make some tough decisions. Competition was fierce in some categories and the Challenge is proving that year on year, the industry excels in going that extra mile to “do one thing” to enhance biodiversity. 

With 85+ entries across eight categories plus nominees for the BIG Biodiversity Champion Award, our judging panel has narrowed down the 2018 shortlist. All category winners, the overall winner and our BIG Biodiversity Champion will be announced at an Awards ceremony on 12th September at the Royal College of Physicians, in central London.  
Dr Martina Girvan, member of the judging panel and Technical Director – Ecology and Arboriculture, Arcadis Consulting Ltd commented “The standard of submissions continues to increase, with fantastic entries of all shapes and sizes and from more and more areas across the UK. It’s wonderful to see the UK construction industry truly rising to the BIG Biodiversity Challenge and embracing the ethos of “do one thing” for biodiversity enhancement. As all the submissions are available on they provide a brilliant resource for boosting biodiversity! We look forward to even more demonstration of the very best practice in construction for biodiversity next year.”
