Assessor Application Form

The Civic Trust Awards assessment teams are made up of up to four people. We aim to provide as many people as possible, with a wealth of knowledge and experience, the opportunity to undertake assessment visits. Ensuring that entries are fully judged, debated and considered for a Civic Trust Award. Judging is blind and Assessors not only consider architectural design merit, but sustainable building practice, accessibility for all and whether a scheme has made a positive impact on the community they serve. We are proud of the high standards our judging process has, and that the Civic Trust Awards is the only awards scheme in the built environment industry that considers all of these elements within its judging criteria. 

  • Architect Assessors - experienced professional who considers the scheme for architectural/design merit and its sustainability credentials.
  • Inclusive Design Assessors - ID or Access professional who advises the team on the ID principles and accessibility for all users.
  • Community Assessors - a retired or practising architect or built environment professional from the local area. A non-professional local community representative, civic society, community group etc with an interest in the built environment and architecture/design to advise assessment team of local opinion.
  • Local Authority Representatives - a member of the local or county council who can provide guidance on specific or non-specific planning issues relating to the scheme.
