Scott: Career highlight

Scott’s winning presentation outlined his innovative and collaborative approach to a major mixed development in Stratford, London, where he is leading the structural engineering.

On receiving the £1,000 prize, Scott said: “Winning the James Rennie Medal is the high point of my career so far. It was a real privilege to present my work to the ICE and a great feeling for those efforts to be recognised by respected peers.”

Judging panel member Jacki Bell said: “This year’s finalists are leading innovation in buildings, transport, utilities and the energy industry. Their confidence, capability and commitment to improving our world is inspirational.”

Scott competed against Nick Hamersley of Kier Construction and Infrastructure Services, and Brent Leersnyder of Hochtief. The three finalists were selected from 1,636 Chartered Professional Review and Chartered Professional Review progressive candidates from around the world from 2017.
