The Construction Users Roundtable (CURT) announced its second annual Construction Industry Project Excellence (CIPE) Awards and called upon the industry to continue its progress in promoting construction productivity across the globe. CURT is committed to give significant national/international recognition to companies and organizations that excel in productivity on capital projects.

CURT is an association of leading corporations in the United States and Canada, dedicated to the promotion of cost effective construction methods. 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. As a result, CURT founded the CIPE Awards to recognize companies and organizations for extraordinary, exemplary and innovative productivity.

The CURT CIPE Award is intended to recognize project teams who have achieved excellence in project delivery. The award judging committee evaluates a project’s ability to add value, eliminate waste, and increase overall excellence in five areas including: Safety, Cost Performance, Schedule Performance, Quality, and Innovation. Through identifying and recognizing excellence in project delivery, CURT hopes to capture and promulgate the common practices from the best of the best and thereby accelerate continuous improvement throughout the industry as a whole.

Many thanks go to the CURT Construction Industry Project Excellence Awards Committee, Co-Chaired by Albert Schwarzkopf, Associate Director, Merck & Co, Inc., and Robert Wagner, Family Care Global Business Unit Construction Manager, The Procter & Gamble Company.
