Strong competition for this year’s GE Awards

Fifty entries were this week shortlisted for the GE Awards 2011, organised by NCE’s sister title Ground Engineering.

The 2011 judging panel was faced with record entry numbers and one of the most competitive fields in the event’s history.

After an intensive day comparing projects and innovation from around the world, the judging panel produced a very strong shortlist.

From this, the overall category winners will be announced at May celebratory lunch.

“The quality, breadth and sheer scale of the entries this year demonstrated the huge impact the ground engineering profession continues to have on the global infrastructure market,” said Ground Engineering editorial director Antony Oliver.

“Every one of this year’s shortlisted entries demonstrates how, year in year out, firms are continuing to push forward the state of the art, improving efficiency, boosting safety and providing better solutions for clients.”

The winners will be announced at the celebratory GE Awards lunch at the Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane on Wednesday 11 May.

The awards are sponsored by Bam Ritchies, Bachy Soletanche and Select Plant Hire. They are supported by Cementation Skanska, Expanded Piling and Mott MacDonald/Keynetix.
