Design Quality Indicator is Innovation Award finalist
Posted: 9th August 2004
The Design Quality Indicator (DQI) has been selected as a finalist for the Innovation Award in the British Institute of Facilities Management (BIFM), Investor in FM Excellence International Awards Programme 2004.
The DQI is a toolkit used throughout the construction process, from the inception of a building, through its design, construction and in-use phases, to capture the opinions of all stakeholders about the design of their building.
At news of the nomination David Walker, the Chairman of the DQI Management Board said
“We are delighted that the CIC DQI entry has been selected as a finalist for the innovation award. The DQI is an important building evaluation tool that helps to highlight issues that will be pertinent over the life of a building. It can also provide feedback on building performance that can help in raising the quality of building design in the future.”
The Construction Industry Council has led the development of the DQI since the idea of measuring design was first mooted in late 1999.
Case studies have shown that using the DQI as a post occupancy tool can help inform facilities managers about problems which users may be having with their building to inform development decisions.
The DQI is currently being used on 348 projects.
The winner of the BIFM Investors in FM Excellence International Awards Programme 2004 Award will be announced on 11 October 2004
