Second award for young engineering geologist

MOTT MACDONALD'S Fleur Loveridge has won this year's Glossop Award, the Engineering Group of the Geological Society's prize for young engineering geologists.

The award comes only a year after she won the BGA Cooling Prize and makes her the first person to achieve both awards.

Loveridge's winning presentation, The engineering geology of a landslide in the Gault, was based on her work on the remediation of a 150,000m 3landslide, which was threatening to close the M25 motorway last year (GE November 2001).

Her presentation highlighted the crucial role of engineering geologists in civil engineering, from project inception to construction.

Loveridge will receive the award at the Glossop Lecture evening at the Royal Institution of Great Britain on 12 November.

This year's lecture is Ongoing challenges in engineering geology for tunnelling in difficult ground, to be given by Professor Paul Marinos.
