GE Awards open for entries

GE’s annual awards event has become a highlight on the geotechnical calendar and entries are now open for the 2014 edition of the GE Awards, which will be presented at a special ceremony on 14 May next year at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.

The categories for the 2014 event have been expanded with the UK project category now split into three awards based on contract value to ensure smaller projects are not overshadowed by some of the major schemes now nearing completion.

GE is also pleased to introduce some new names on the judging panel including recently appointed BGA chairman Chris Menkiti, Transport Scotland head of network maintenance Graham Edmund, United Utilities senior project manager Carl Sanders, London Underground head of deep tube tunnels Keith Bowers, HS2 technical director Andrew McNaughton and Highways Agency geotechnical advisor David Patterson. Previous judges returning include slope stability specialist Eddie Bromhead, Crossrail head of geotechnics Mike Black and City University professor of soil mechanics Sarah Stallebrass.

Sponsoring the 2014 event are Bachy Soletanche, which is supporting the Young Geotechnical Engineer of the Year category; Bam Ritchies as sponsor of the Consultant of the Year award, the Sustainability category is supported by RSK and Select, which is once again lending its name to the Health and Safety category. Cementation Skanska is also supporting the event.

Details of the event, categories and entry requirements can be found at

Entries close on 17 January 2014.
