ICE news

Designer of France's record breaking Millau Viaduct, Michel Virloguex, was awarded the ICE gold medal last month for his pioneering work on external prestressing techniques and his design of composite and cablestayed bridges. Virloguex, pictured with ICE past president Colin Clinton, visited One Great George Street to accept the coveted award. He also received praise for his role in promoting engineers as 'creative designers' through media coverage of the Millau Viaduct. The medal is awarded to individuals who demonstrate civil engineering excellence over many years. Past winners of the award include geotechnical guru Alec Skempton and Millennium Dome designer Ian Liddell.
