The serious work of judging must now begin.
With the panel ready to view the best that geotechnical and geoenvironmental engineering has to offer, it is an exciting time to be involved with this inaugural event.
The choice of the premier five-star Royal Garden Hotel in west London reflects GE's aim that this will be the geotechnical awards and an event worth attending regardless of whether your firm has submitted an entry this year.
Below are 15 reasons why your company should be represented at the capital's West End event.
