The Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) is inviting engineering firms and organisations from across the North West to showcase their work as it gears up for its annual awards.
Award categories include best large, medium and small projects as well as accolades for diversity, community, heritage, constructability and volunteering.
Nominations are open to projects completed in the last two years, with the winners announced at the ICE North West Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony, at The Mercure Manchester Piccadilly Hotel on Thursday 26 March 2020.
Amongst the winners in 2019, the ICON rollercoaster at Blackpool Pleasure Beach won medium project of the year. This exciting project provided an inventive engineering solution to a complex problem, on a highly constricted site. Winning firm, Westlakes Engineering, used BIM technology to accelerate and improve the safe design and construction of the roller coaster and this project has been used to try and inspire the next generation of engineers through ICE’s STEM engagement.
Emma Antrobus, ICE North West Director, said: “The annual awards recognise the delivery of effective infrastructure projects and promote the very best of civil engineering across the North West. Each year, they are keenly contested by the region’s leading engineering and project management firms, and I am expecting another strong cohort of entries for 2020.
“It is important to showcase the outstanding work in the art of civil engineering throughout the region as these projects contribute so much to society and improve people’s everyday lives.”
Deadline for entries is Monday 20th January 2020 with an entry fee of £100 exc. VAT.
