Queen rewards engineers in birthday honours list

Civil engineers have once again been recognised in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list.

Consultant Martin Barnes, who developed the New Engineering Contract, picked up a CBE for services to civil engineering. ICE past-president Quentin Leiper also picked up a CBE, for services to sustainability.

CBEs also went to Arup’s Steve Burrows for services to civil engineering overseas − notably the design of Beijing’s Bird’s Nest Olympic stadium − and to Royal Academy of Engineering vice president, Peter Saraga who was awarded a CBE for services to science and engineering.

Andrew Wolstenholme was awarded an OBE for services to construction while construction director at BAA. He now heads up Balfour Beatty Management.

George Cox of George Cox & Associates was also awarded an OBE, for services to civil and structural engineering.

MBEs went to Professor Edward Parry Evans, major Robert John Hewson, and major Neil John Painter of the Royal Engineers and Environment Agency flood risk manager Geoffrey Bell.
