Perkins competed with Victoria Martin from Expedition Engineering and Sonja Abhyankar from Arup in the first all-female final in the medal’s 20 year history. Her presentation described her role working with the tender team and on site. The £500M contract was awarded to Bam Ferrovial Kier Joint Venture in 2010. “I’m proud to be awarded the James Rennie Medal.” she said. “I hope awards like this inspire others to gain broad experiences that can lead to their own chartership success.” The Jean Venables Medal for the best Technician Professional Review candidate, went to Lloyd Clough. Ivik Masek won the Tony Chapman Medal, recognising the best Member Professional Review candidate.
