HAVE YOU developed an innovative civil engineering technique or a cutting edge product to save time and money on construction sites?
If so, you should enter the Civils awards, a new competition specially designed to highlight the industry's most inventive minds.
The Civils Awards, backed by NCE, will assess ground-breaking applications of existing products and techniques alongside those new to the market.
Judges are looking for a combination of technological invention and good engineering, plus cost and time savings. Environmental benefits and contributions to sustainability will earn particularly high ratings.
Innovations must have been proved on site and first use of a product, technique or application must have taken place since November 1997.
A shortlist will be drawn up and published in NCE before Civils 2000 opens. The winner will be named during the Civils & Interbuild 2000 Gala Dinner on 22 May.
Exhibitors are being asked to complete their Civils Awards entry form jointly with project engineers, manufacturers or technique developers. Deadline for entries is 31 January 2000.
All exhibitors will automatically receive an entry form and full details by post. More details from Julie Mitchell. tel (0171) 505 6828
