Arup was last week named major consultant of the year at the annual NCE/ACE Consultants of the Year Awards 2009.
The Beijing Olympic stadium, Stonecutters bridge and the commission to help design the 38km Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau bridge all helped Arup win this year’s major consultant of the year accolade.
Arup picked up its prize at an exclusive ceremony at Claridges Hotel in London on Friday. The major consultantaward was sponsored by Polypipe.
International consultant of the year was Mott MacDonald, which this year made the leap into the club that earns more overseas than it does in the UK and has projects like Delhi Metro, the £1.05bn Macau City of Dreams and the Arabian Canal in Dubai on its books.
In the medium sized consultant category, sponsored by Griffiths & Armour, it was a close race but technical maestro Tony Gee & Partners took the top spot.
