Exceptional knowledge scoops medal

ICE news

DAVID SCARR has won the James Rennie Medal for his presentation of the Malampaya Project, an offshore gas field development in the Philippines.

The medal is awarded annually to a young engineer who has demonstrated exceptional qualities in the use of engineering principles and construction knowledge, and is based on reports submitted for the chartered professional review.

The winner is chosen on the basis of a presentation given by finalists during the Graduates & Students Papers Competition.

Scarr worked on the project for two years with consultant Arup, initially in the design office carrying out wave loading analysis on the concrete gravity substructure.

In March 1999 he moved to the construction site, carrying out quality control and managing marine operations.

Scarr will be presented with his medal and £500 winners cheque at the annual awards ceremony next month.
