Welcome to the award winners’ announcement for the 2018 Ground Engineering Awards – our 10th anniversary.
Geoenvironmental Project of the YearSubscription
This category is for a geoenvironmental scheme - as a standalone project or part of a larger development - that stands out in terms of its credentials in innovation, quality, sustainability, health and safety and value engineering. Projects shortlisted into this category have a major focus on contaminated land remediation or specialist environmental protection as part of a geotechnical scheme.
This category was open to any company that could show excellence through new product or technology development in the past 12 months.
Ground Investigation Project of the YearSubscription
This award recognises ground investigation that stands out in terms of its credentials in innovation, quality, sustainability, health and safety and value engineering. Entrants had to demonstrate elements within the design and delivery that were focused on minimising risk from unexpected ground conditions during the construction phase and demonstrate the steps taken to achieve this.
Entrants for this award had to demonstrate an initiative, operations process, innovation or piece of equipment that has clearly contributed to improving health and safety on site. The award is for a company-wide policy, an initiative or technique applied to a specific project but it must have demonstrated how safety risks associated with the geotechnical element of the work or for the geotechnical workforce were reduced.
Innovation and excellence in site investigation, surveying and monitoring are recognised in this category. Entrants must demonstrate how innovative use of existing techniques or pioneering new technology improved their investigations or surveys to deliver a high level of site information for the client.
This award recognises a hi-tech advancement or concept that has helped a company improve its performance or delivery of a specific challenging element of a project. The shortlist has achieved technical excellence through producing a new approach to analysis or design, advanced techniques or procedures and/or working with its customers to improve delivery of a specific part of a project through technical refinement.
This is for a ground engineering scheme (as a standalone project or part of a larger development) with a contract value of over £3M that stands out in terms of its credentials in innovation, sustainability, health and safety and value engineering.
GE takes a look at the stories behind some of the entries shortlisted for June’s Ground Engineering Awards.
This category is for companies that can show excellence in the way they have used technical, systems or process innovation within their own business in the last 12 months to improve performance and service to clients. Entries in this category focussed on business-wide innovations and, where applicable, be used on multiple projects.
