The NCE100 Trending 20 has been revealed, with 13 firms named on the list for the first time.
Now in its second year, the Trending 20 recognises the work of firms with fewer than 200 staff.
Seven of last year’s Trending 20 have retained their places, including Civic Engineers, Design2e and Hewson Consulting Engineers.
From the Trending 20, a champion will be selected by New Civil Engineer’s expert editorial team.
New Civil Engineer editor Mark Hansford said: “We are looking for the most creative, innovative company to crown as Trending 20 Champion this year.
“Congratulations must go to all those shortlisted.”
Last year, Birmingham-based company FJD consulting was named the inaugural Trending 20 Champion for its work on re-uniting two sections of the Great Central Railway in Loughborough to create a continuous 30km heritage railway.
By introducing innovative “flat-packed” bridges to maximise value as well as sourcing redundant bridges from other railway projects, FJD Consulting was able to save £2M.
The nominations for of this year’s NCE100 awards were announced earlier this month, with Arup and Morgan Sindall leading the way with five nominations each.
The NCE100 awards night will take place on 30 April in London. Click here to book your table.
