PRESTIGIOUS ENGINEERING AWARDS OPEN IN YORKSHIRE AND HUMBER
6th October 2017
Businesses from across Yorkshire and Humber are being invited to showcase their work by the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) as it gears up for its annual awards.
The Institution's Yorkshire and Humber Annual Awards celebrate engineering excellence and recognise innovation in the art of civil engineering, as well as the wider positive impact nominated projects have on society. Nominations are open to projects completed or substantially completed in the last two years, with the winners announced at the Institution's Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony on 2 March 2018 at the Majestic Hotel in Harrogate. The awards are divided into three categories, with projects with a total cost in excess of £5m vying for the Centenary Award, while projects costing less than £5m are up for the Smeaton Award. The final category, the Sir John Fowler Award, recognises studies or research projects of any value. The A160 Port of Immingham Improvements project, which upgraded the highway network between the existing A180 and the Port of Immingham, was the winner of the 2017 Centenary Award. It was commissioned by Highways England, designed by Jacobs and delivered by Costain. ICE Yorkshire and Humber Regional Director Penny Marshall said: -Our annual awards are always well received with an influx of nominations each year that demonstrate the very best of the art of civil engineering across Yorkshire and Humber. It is important to recognise the outstanding projects throughout the region, which contribute so much to society and improve people's everyday lives.
