James Rennie Medal finalists announced

The ICE will next month begin the final selection process for the winner of the 2008 James Rennie Medal Award.

Three finalists have been selected from over 950 candidates who applied for Chartered status in 2007 through the Chartered Professional Review (CPR) process.

The finalists will stand in front of an audience in the Thomas Telford Theatre at the ICE and present their projects to fellow ICE members and graduates.

After this, the 2008 James Rennie Medal Awards will be presented by the judges' panel to the winner.

A member of the judging panel said, "Selecting the finalists was no easy task due to the high calibre of candidates. However, we are
confident that the three finalists selected will provide a lively and entertaining final due to the range of interesting and challenging projects their reports were based on."

The James Rennie Medal Award, along with a £500 cash prize, will be given to the candidate who demonstrates a meticulous, thorough and broad understanding of their subject matter while making a significant contribution to the promotion and development of civil engineering.

This year's finalists challenging for the award are Ramboll Whitbybird senior engineer Paul Wewer, Corus industrial business manager Robert Dale and Arup senior geotechnical engineer Sarah Glover.

The awards ceremony will take place at the ICE London, starting at 6.30pm on 22 April.
