IStructE's Gold Medal awarded to Arup Engineer

The Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE) has awarded its Gold Medal to Mike Glover of Arup for his outstanding contribution to major multi disciplinary projects.

Mike Glover has spent the last ten years working on the Channel Tunnel Rail Link, one of the biggest UK infrastructure projects of the last century. The 109km long high speed rail link includes 150 bridges, many miles of tunnels, the major rejuvenation of London's Grade I listed St Pancras Station and the regeneration of large urban brown field areas in Kings Cross, Stratford and north Kent.

Glover will deliver his Gold Medal Address on 25th June at the Institute of Directors, London.

The Gold Medal is IStructE's highest individual award and is made for exceptional personal contributions to the advancement of structural engineering. Since 1922, it has only been awarded 40 times. Previous winners of the Gold Medal include Ove Arup (1973), Edmund Happold (1991) and Michel Virlogeux (1996).
