The 2018 Ground Engineering Awards is now open for entries and the event is set to be the biggest yet.
“GE will be celebrating its 50th anniversary at the awards and there will be special golden trophies for the 2018 winners to mark the occasion,” said GE editor Claire Smith.
“The awards itself will be celebrating its 10th anniversary and we are planning a special Project of the Decade category to mark the milestone. This non-enterable award will take all the winners from our major projects category from the last 10 years and the winner will be decided via a public vote.”
While the shortlist for the Projects of the Decade category is already decided, there are 16 enterable categories including Contractor of the Year, Consultant of the Year, Ground Investigation Specialist of the Year and the Rising Star Award. Go to the awards website – www.geawards.com – for full details of all the categories and details on how to enter.
In addition to winning one of the categories, shortlisted entries will also be considered by Smith for the Editor’s Award.
The deadline for submitting entries will be 12 January 2018. The shortlist will be announced in late February and face to face judging of successful entrants will take place between 16 and 20 April.
The awards ceremony itself will be held in the evening of 6 June 2018 at the London Hilton on Park Lane.
