Ground Engineering Awards – final call for entries

The judging is done and the inaugural Ground Engineering Awards are about to take place.

While many companies are already beavering away with submissions, GE wants as broad a range as possible to reflect the excellent work done by firms in the sector. These are the contractors, consultants and manufacturers that rarely get to see their names in lights.

Do remember the Ground Engineering Awards are open to both UK and overseas companies – the idea is to celebrate the exciting world of geotechnical and geoenvironmental engineers, wherever that may be.

Ten reasons why you should send an entry and attend the Awards ceremony:

- Provide your clients with independent evidence that you are good to do business with
- Be part of a premiere geotechnical/geoenvironmental awards event
- Grasp the opportunity to see your firm lead the field
- Meet new clients from a cross-industry audience
- Show off all that is great about your firm
- Celebrate the work of your young engineers – and attract more in the process
- Network with captains of geotechnical and geoenvironmental engineering
- Help turn the spotlight on to your industry ahead of major UK projects such as Crossrail and the Olympics
- Learn about the latest innovative and cutting edge techniques
- Your competitors will be there – can you afford not to be?
