PROJECT MANAGEMENT expertise in the construction industry will be showcased at tonight's grand final of the Institution of Civil Engineer's Civil Engineering Manager of the Year Award.
Four finalists will stake their claim to the Award in the Telford lecture theatre at Great George Street by presenting their project management ideas and achievements to an audience of ICE members.
Battling it out will be Brian Coslett of Hyder Utilities, who led the £45M Ganol Water Treatment project in Wales; Rodney Self, who heads the £250M Karachi Water Supply Scheme for Mott MacDonald International; Graeme Stewart, head of BP Amoco's £60M Vapour Recovery Project and Michael Fordham, who was in charge of Thames Water's £165M East London sewage sludge incineration project.
Each contestant will have already spent the morning and afternoon being grilled by the judging panel, under the chairmanship of ICE vice president David Cawthra.
All are welcome to the presentations, which kick off at 5.45pm. The judges will make their final decision and Award at a celebratory drinks reception directly afterwards at about 8.30pm.
