GE Next Generation Awards open for entries

Preparations for the 2015 GE Next Generation Awards are in full swing following announcement of the event at the GE Awards last week.

Entry forms for the seven categories that recognise the broad range of skills that are essential to the ground engineering industry are now available to download.

Candidates have until 4 September to submit their completed application forms to GENextGeneration@emap.com

Guest speaker for the event, which will take the form of an evening drinks reception on 19 November, has been confirmed as Crossrail chairman Terry Morgan who is a strong advocate of developing opportunities in construction for young people.

Shortlist candidates will have the opportunity to demonstrate their skills and understanding to the judging panels through interviews, which will take place in London on 14 and 15 October.

The judging panels are in the process of being confirmed but Thames Tideway geotechnical manager John Harris, British Tunnelling Society chairman Roger Bridge and Geotechnical Asset Owners Forum chairman Graham Holland are among those that have already agreed to take part in the process.
