DQI was announced a Tools of the Trade Awards Winner 2007.

Posted: 16th June 2007

The Awards, launched in 2006 by The British Urban Regeneration Association (BURA) and South East Excellence, showcase the best toolkits available for practitioners working to create sustainable communities in the South East.

DQI was rated as one of the best toolkits in terms of content, accessibility and practicality.

Used on over 800 projects, DQI is a pioneering toolkit used throughout the construction process for evaluating design quality of projects.

Upon hearing of the award Giles Oliver Chairman of the DQI Management Board said: “We are delighted at this recognition for the terrific value that the DQI brings to client, design team and users. In both public and private sectors the DQI is helping set a new level of understanding and commitment to quality at all stages of projects. From the Welsh Assembly to the smallest primary school, the DQI is proving its worth for the hundreds of projects who have pioneered its use in practice. This is a vote of confidence in the champions, facilitators and stakeholders who have committed themselves to raising design quality across all procurement routes
