GE Awards entry deadline draws close

With the deadline for entries for the 2013 GE Awards just 10 days away, now is the time to get your entry started or to finish off ones that weren’t completed before the Christmas break.

The consulting firm, contractor and ground investigation specialist of the year award categories that were introduced in 2012 are expected to be hotly contested at the 2013 event which will be held at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London on 25 April.

Also popular are the project categories with separate awards for schemes up to £1M (in geotechnical value), over £1M and international projects. Other categories will celebrate technical excellence; sustainability; health and safety; and product and equipment innovation.

Young talent will also be honoured at the awards with the Young Geotechnical Engineer of the Year open to anyone under 30 years old working in the industry.

There is also the Editors’ Award – introduced last year – which will be open to all entries. Last year’s winner – Thames Water’s Lee Tunnel - wasn’t shortlisted in its submitted category because the project was still ongoing. Nonetheless, editor Claire Symes selected it as the winner due to the work already undertaken on the diaphragm walls, which demonstrates that there are award-winning opportunities for all entrants.

Full details of the categories and criteria can be found at
