Thames Tideway has become the first industry sponsor of the ICE’s Invisible Superheroes exhibition.
The exhibition will feature key projects submitted as part of the 200 Projects and People shortlist, celebrating civil engineering from around the world over the last 200 years .
Top projects included the Sir Joseph Bazalgette’s London sewer network and its 21st Century upgrade, Tideway, which launches in 2018.
The idea behind the exhibition is to celebrate the heroic and life transforming work that civil engineers undertake. Civil engineers from around the world who have taken part in amazing projects, including Tideway chief executive and ICE Fellow Andy Mitchell, have been turned into comic book-style superheroes,.
ICE head of knowledge delivery Simon Venn said: “Since opening nearly a year ago, the Infrastructure Learning Hub at ICE has welcomed over 22,000 visitors to view the exhibitions and learn about civil engineering. I am confident that the Invisible Superheroes exhibition will attract even more visitors.”
Tideway asset management director Roger Bailey said: “Tideway are once again very proud to be partnering with ICE to deliver another exhibition that helps show the impact that civil engineering has on society.”
To further showcase the crucial role that civil engineers play in keeping the world running, the ICE is inviting members to share a profile of their civil engineering superhero powers with the world. These will then form part of the exhibition.
Authors of the most inspiring submissions will be given their own superhero cartoon character. To share a profile, members must complete the form on the ICE website.
The best 10 member heroes will have the chance for their submissions to be professionally worked into characters to be featured in ICE’s birthday exhibition.
- The “Invisible Superheroes” exhibition will open in December 2017 and run throughout 2018. For further information or to become an exhibition partner, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 0207 665 2163.
