Work up those Fleming Award entries

ENTRIES FOR this year's BGA Fleming Award must be in by 16 September. The annual £3,000 prize is awarded to a project team demonstrating excellence in geotechnical design and construction.

The award is sponsored by Cementation Foundations Skanska in honour of its late chief engineer Ken Fleming. Last year it was shared by the teams that built the Moorhouse draught relief shaft for Crossrail in London and Sir John Rogerson's Quay in Dublin.

Teams should include between three and six members from different organisations, such as geotechnical contractor, main contractor, consultant, project manager or client. One must be a BGA member.

Projects (or well-de'ned sections of projects) completed by 30 June 2005 may be entered but must be of a size and complexity to show qualities the judges are looking for.

Teams must submit a 500-word statement explaining why their project should be considered. It should contain no more than six photographs and four drawings.

Shortlisted teams will be invited to give a short presentation at the awards night on 7 December at the ICE in London.

For details and an entry form contact Gavin Bowyer at the BGA, tel: 0207 665 2233; email: bga@ice. org.uk; www. britishgeotech. org. uk
