Industry leaders have urged project leaders to throw a light on engineering achievements by entering the British Construction Industry Awards.
Entries are still open for the awards, which are the most robustly judged of their kind and the only in the industry to have the support of the prime minister.
“The British Construction Industry Awards is a chance to showcase how civil engineers shape our world,” said ICE director general Nick Baveystock. “All nominees’ projects are judged by senior industry clients and peers, providing a great way to showcase engineering excellence.
“As an industry we are sometimes accused of hiding our light under a bushel. This is a chance to shout loud about our achievements,” he said.
“Getting a British Construction Industry award is well recognised by the engineering community,” added Seevali Surendran, Environment Agency project manager, and a past winner.
That all shortlisted projects get a visit from the judges is appreciated by project teams. “I value the fact that the judges carry out site visits,” said Osborne head of strategy Caroline Compton-James.
