Entries open for 2019 Ground Engineering Awards

The 2019 Ground Engineering Awards is now open for entries and the event is set to be the biggest yet with two new categories and updated criteria.

New for 2019 are the Community Engagement Award and Specialist Geotechnical Supplier of the Year categories, which bring the number of enterable categories up to 18.

“We engaged with finalists from the 2018 awards to improve the criteria and categories for next year’s event,” said GE editor Claire Smith. “As a result of these discussions, we have taken the community engagement elements out of the company categories to create a standalone award to celebrate the effort many projects go to in order to become part of the communities they work in. The company categories are now more focused on technical achievements and are joined by the Specialist Geotechnical Supplier of the Year category to celebrate the input of specialist subcontractors and material suppliers to the ground engineering industry.”

The judging panels have also been expanded and the latest new recruits include University of Southampton professor of offshore geotechnical engineering Susan Gourvenac, Tensar chief civil engineer Yuli Doulala-Rigby and Horizon Nuclear Power lead engineer for ground engineering Mark Doherty.

Contenders for the 2019 event have until 11 January to submit their award-winning entries. Shortlists will be announced in February and live judging will take place in April ahead of announcement of the winners at an evening celebration on 5 June 2019 at the Hilton Park Lane in London.
