The Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) is inviting engineering firms and organisations from across the Yorkshire and the Humber to showcase their work as it gears up for its 65th annual awards.
Projects with a value of more than £5 million are eligible for the Centenary Award, those with a value more of less than £5 million can be entered into the Smeaton Award, and the Sir John Fowler Award is for research projects and studies.
Nominations are open to projects completed or substantially completed in the last two years, with the winners announced at the ICE Yorkshire and the Humber Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony, at Sheffield City Hall on 6 March 2020.
In 2019, the Hornsea onshore substation was the Centenary Award winner. When completed in 2020, Hornsea offshore windfarm will produce enough green energy to power over one million homes. It will be the first wind farm to exceed 1GW in capacity. The substation element of the scheme, which was carried out by Ørsted and Balfour Beatty, was completed in August 2018.
Penny Marshall, ICE Yorkshire and the Humber Regional Director, said: “The annual awards recognise the delivery of effective infrastructure projects and promote the very best of civil engineering across the Yorkshire and the Humber. 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 Yorkshire and the surrounding areas, as these projects contribute so much to society and improve people’s everyday lives.”
Early bird entry fee for completed entries received by Friday 8 November 2019,
£100 exc. VAT. Standard entry fee for completed entries received by the closing date of Friday 29 November 2019, £150 exc. VAT.
