New projects sought for ICE civils awareness campaign

This is civil engineering campaign

The ICE is urging members in the UK and abroad to promote civil engineering to the public by joining its ‘This is Civil Engineering’ awareness campaign. 

During the campaign, huge “#thisiscivilengineering” banners are displayed on a range of construction projects to help the public understand more about civil engineering. The banner also explains how the project will benefit the local community. Photographs of the project and the banners are shared on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram to reach a wider audience.

Hundreds of projects have joined the campaign since it was originally launched in 2012, and new projects are needed for 2016. One of ICE President Sir John Armitt’s apprentices – Transport for London civil engineer Aaron Matthew – has joined the campaign project team to help drive it forward.

Projects can be visually impressive, socially significant, still under construction or about to be completed or opened. Bespoke banners are produced for each project depending on the type of development, and all host company logos. 

It is also possible to get involved in the campaign just by posting impressive photos of projects and visual milestones to Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram  – including a short message describing the project, and the campaign hashtag #thisiscivilengineering. 

  • To find out more about the campaign or submit a project to display a #thisiscivilengineering banner, please send full details of the project, including its location to Include a phone number and email for the main point of contact.
