NCE has launched a new international awards programme designed to recognise and reward the outstanding performances from across the tunnelling and underground construction industry.
The Intercnational Tunnelling Awards 2010 will highlight excellence in firms, teams, individuals and in innovations that drive this specialised sector. It will also examine the projects completed in the past 24 months.
Entries are sought for a range of project, product and individual categories from around the world of international tunnelling. The closing date for entries is 10 September 2010.
The tunnelling industry is one of the most important sectors in the field of major infrastructure construction. More than one in five of the 126 global megaprojects identified by the NCE Major Projects Hub involve tunneling activity totalling around $220bn (£150bn) of work.
A panel of judges, now being finalised, will assess all entries and create a showcase of tunnelling excellence from which the industry can identify and celebrate best practice and models for exemplary work in the future.
The awards are looking to reward completed projects but, given the scale and complexity of modern tunnelling projects, they will also recognise specific outstanding achievements being made during the ongoing delivery of current major global projects.
The winners will be announced at a special awards ceremony in December 2010.
