Bluebeam and The B1M — New Construction Story of the Year Award

B1M and Bluebeam launch worldwide hunt for the most innovative construction stories for new first-of-its-kind AEC industry award.


Bluebeam, Inc. and The B1M announced recently the launch of the ‘Construction Story of the Year’ award. This will be the first of its kind award for the AEC market, aimed at spotlighting the people and projects that have made a positive impact on the industry and promoted a change in the built environment.

“Behind every building project is a story: unexpected problems, clever solutions, and challenges that are overcome in the end,” Don Jacob, VP, Technology & Innovation, Build & Construct Division, Nemetschek Group, and founding team member of Bluebeam explained. “The trouble is, we rarely get to hear about them. This is a great opportunity to share those stories and show what it takes to create those transformative endeavors that shape our world.”

Submission Website

The two companies have launched a submission website here and are currently accepting entries from individuals with stand-out stories about innovative solutions to a broad spectrum of challenges in construction, from technological problems to sustainable innovations.

“The construction industry is not very good at shouting about itself,” explains The B1M Founder and Managing Director, Fred Mills. “Most people don’t really understand this important sector and what it can achieve. Engineers, architects, construction managers, urban planners, and all kinds of other people in this industry are working tirelessly to make our world a better place. These stories deserve to be celebrated.”

Entries are open from today until Friday, September 3, 2021. Finalists will be decided on by a panel of industry experts and the winner will be announced during a live event on October 27, 2021.

The winner will be featured in an extended interview and documentary with The B1M’s Fred Mills, and have their story promoted through The B1M and Bluebeam’s platforms, live speaking opportunities at The B1M events, and a commemorative trophy.
