The Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) South West have announced that the 2018 Civil Engineering Awards are now open for entries.
The prestigious awards celebrate outstanding civil engineering achievement, innovation and ingenuity around the south west of England. It is a chance for project managers, organisations and engineers from across the region to showcase the fantastic work that is taking place.
This year ICE South West will be introducing two new categories ‘Graduate of the Year’ and ‘Apprentice of the Year’, reflecting the significance of graduate members and the importance of apprentices within the industry.
Chris Burton, chair of the 2018 judging panel said, “The ICE South West Awards are the perfect way of recognising the excellence and achievements of civil engineers in the region. 2018 has special merit as the Institution celebrates its 200th anniversary and the judging panel cannot wait to see the entries for this year’s competition.”
There are six main project categories for the awards: Projects over £3m New Build; Projects over £3m Re-engineered; Projects less that £3m; Community Award, which highlights the significant achievement of involving the local area and media; the Nick Lyness Collaboration Award, which celebrates collaborative working within organisations and community groups; and finally the People’s Choice Award, giving members of the public the opportunity to vote for their favourite local projects.
This year’s judging panel will include Chris Burton (Tony Gee & Partners), Trish Johnson (Clifton Suspension Bridge), Mike Gallop (Network Rail), Dr Maria Marsico (University of Exeter), Saeed Mojabi (Arup) and Dominic Bostock (CORMAC).
