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 award was open to any multi-company collaborative project team involved in the UK geotechnical industry. The success of the project team had to be demonstrated with reference to collaborative working on a UK geotechnical project; how the team culture led to improved project deliver; evidence of how the entire project team were focused on mutual goals; and joint activities that highlight outstanding performance.
This award celebrates a scheme with a ground engineering contract value of less than £1M that stands out in terms of its credentials in innovation, quality, sustainability, health and safety and value engineering. Entrants had to explain and provide evidence to demonstrate what exceptional measures were taken to result in the project being delivered above the expected standard. A key element in deciding the winner will be the contribution of the entrant to the overall delivery of a project.
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.
Shortlisted entrants for this category had to demonstrat an innovative, unusual, or cutting edge approach to environmental and sustainability issues on a geotechnical project.
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.
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.
