Six shortlisted for NCE Graduate Award

Six finalists have been chosen for the coveted NCE Graduate Award for 2009 after judges struggled through 120 entries − a competition record.

All finalists now face a gruelling interview with the 15 Award judges next week.

Consultant Halcrow leads the field with two graduates in the final: Chris Lloyd and Natalie Ward.

Also facing the interview panel will be Owen Jones from Laing O’Rourke, David Rowlinson from Hyder, Raghuraj Pandya from Atkins and Arup’s James O’Donnell.

Entries came from more than 50 UK-based companies and from as far afield as Thailand, India, Italy, Qatar and Nigeria.

Last year’s winner Emma Kent went on to quiz construction minister Ian Lucas, prompting him to discuss his vision for the chief construction adviser post.

Winners will share in a £2,700 prize pot to be presented to the finalists and eventual winner at the awards lunch at the ICE in December.
