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.
This category recognises the geotechnical consultancy, or division within a major consultant, that has continually delivered innovation, quality and value over the last 12 months, while growing in terms of revenue, profits and staff numbers. Entrants had to use evidence from projects to show how their business has gone beyond the expected level of service through interaction with clients, contractors and stakeholders.
GE takes a look at the stories behind some of the entries shortlisted for June’s Ground Engineering Awards.
This category provides the opportunity for geotechnical contractors or general contractors undertaking ground engineering work to demonstrate a continued dedication to delivering innovation, quality and value over the last year.
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.
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.
This award recognises projects that have delivered geotechnical innovation that stands out on the international stage for credentials in sustainability, health and safety and value engineering. In reaching their decisions the judges will take particular note of client satisfaction, innovation, value for money, performance against prediction, the quality of design and construction, safety and application of quality management.
