GE’s annual awards event has become a highlight on the geotechnical calendar and entries are now open for the 2013 edition of the GE Awards, which will be presented at a special ceremony on 25 April next year at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.
The categories for the 2013 event remain the same but the entry criteria and process has been streamlined to make getting your company’s achievements recognised more straightforward than ever before.
GE is also pleased to introduce some new names on the judging panel.

This year’s Contractor of the Year Award, Balfour Beatty Ground Engineering, has said that winning the new category was a great boost and the company has joined the list of sponsors for the 2013 by championing the contractors’ award. Also sponsoring the 2013 event are Bachy Soletanche, which supporting the Young Geotechnical Engineer of the Year category; Bam Ritchies, which is supporting the Consultant of the Year award and Select, which is once again lending its name to the Health and Safety category.
