The ICE is calling for nominations for its institutional awards, which are designed to recognise achievement and major long term contribution to the profession and the Institution.
Perhaps most prestigious is the widely lauded Gold Medal – the Institution’s premier award for civil engineering excellence. This is given to an individual whose sustained contribution to civil engineering over many years is of particular magnitude and stature, and was won last year by past ICE president Doug Oakervee.
Other awards include the Edmund Hambly Medal for an project that makes a contribution to the well being of mankind and the environment. The Brunel Medal is awarded to a person or team recognised for excellence in civil engineering, and the International Medal is awarded to a UK national for work outside of the UK, or someone from outside the UK for work done inside the country. Also open for nomination is the Garth Watson medal for long, dedicated and valuable service to the Institution.
ICE director general Tom Foulkes said: "Awards are a great way to recognise the outstanding achievements of our members across the profession and around the globe. I encourage anyone who believes they know of a person or team that has made a real contribution to the profession to submit a nomination and get them the recognition they deserve."
The awards are open to civil engineers from all over world and will be presented in the Autumn.
The closing date for nominations is 17 April and forms and guidelines can be downloaded from www.ice.org.uk
