The Lady of the Lake, a bold piece of landscape art planned at the Shotton surface mining project in Northumberland, helped developer HJ Banks pick up the civil engineering planned development award in the recent BE Awards for excellence organised by software developer Bentley Systems. HJ Banks worked with architect Charles Jencks and used 3D design tools to plan the sculpture which will eventually be created using computer guided earthmoving equipment as coal, shale and clay are extracted from the mine over the next 10 years. The project was one of 36 projects around the world recognised by Bentley at its annual conference last month in Baltimore. For full details of the winners visit www. nceplus. co. uk
