Winning words


Consultants rather than businessmen can 'turn a country round', said HRH The Duke of Gloucester speaking at the British Consultants of the Year Awards. The winning projects, he said, showed that 'consultants clearly make a difference to the world because they achieve things.' Entec UK won the large firms, visible projects category for its Support for Environmental Assessment & Management project in Egypt. The project was funded by the UK Department for International Development and run with the Egyptian Environmental Affairs Agency. CMS Cameron McKenna and Mott MacDonald won the large firms, non-visible project category for the privatisation of Kilimanjaro Airport, Tanzania - Africa's first airport privatisation which involved a total overhaul of safety, training and management systems plus refurbishment of the airport. In the small firms visible projects category, the winner was architect Ahrends Burton & Koralek for its design of the Dublin Dental Hospital. PTRC was winner of the non- visual projects for small firms for its Phare Management & Training Project. Individual consultant of the year in the visible projects category was Ian Cross-Martin of Mott MacDonald who led the revitalisation of urban transport in Accra, Ghana. Ian Robertson of IMC Group won the non visual project category for work running the consulting centre in Kemerovo, Russia.
