ACE Excellence Awards

ACE has announced the shortlist for its Engineering Excellence Awards for excellence in building structures, infrastructure, and building services.

A new prize will recognise one individual who has championed the consultancy and engineering sector and raised the profile of what engineers do by naming the ACE Engineering Ambassador of the Year.  

ACE chief executive Nelson Ogunshakin, said: “The wide range of submissions is a testament to the enterprise and diversity of consultancy and engineering firms.  We have some of the largest firms in the global engineering sector in this country as well as a great many smaller specialist firms who also drive innovation.”

All the entries met, and in many cases, exceeded the environmental standards required of design and build. 

“This year’s awards will see the best of the engineering and consultancy sector recognised for their achievement and for their role in the reshaping of the British and global economy,” he said.
