Ground Engineering Awards

The winners of the inaugural Ground Engineering Awards were announced last week during a ceremony at The Royal Garden Hotel in London. Honours included the Sustainability Award for Arup, Wrekin and Vale Royal Borough Council for the Northwich Salt Mines Stabilisation Project.

The Health and Safety Award went to Cementation Foundations Skanska, and the winner of the Private Sector Award for work with a geotechnical value under £1M was Ritchies for the Clunie Dam Post Tensioning.

Ritchie's also received the Public Sector Award for work under £1M for the A40 and M50 Cuttings Stabilisation, while Halcrow/Porth Integrated Project Team won the Public Sector Award for work over £1M for the Porth Relief Road.

The Private Sector Award for work over £1M went to Keller Ground Engineering/Fitzpatrick/Collier Associates for the Dartford Park project. The final award of the day, and the one most debated by the judges, the Young Engineer of the Year, went to Hazel Weston of Westpile.

GE editor Damon Schünmann said: "I was personally overwhelmed by the level of response to this inaugural, specialist sector event, and feel assured that the awards are a welcome and long awaited addition to the construction events calendar." A full awards brochure and listing can be found with this month's GE.
