Scottish Civil Engineering Awards launched for 2020/21
The search is on for Scotland’s top engineering and construction projects with the launch of the 2020/21 Scottish Civil Engineering Awards.
The Awards celebrate outstanding civil engineering achievement, innovation and ingenuity in Scotland. Organised jointly by CECA Scotland and the Institution of Civil Engineers Scotland, the awards are widely recognised as the highest honour for engineering excellence in the built environment sector, showcasing the success of Scottish civil engineering and celebrating how it shapes and adds value to everyday life.
The 2019 winners included the prestigious V&A Museum of Design in Dundee, the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route and the Stronelairg and Melgarve Substations project, which went on to be nominated for the ICE People’s Choice Award.
Construction and built environment professionals are invited to nominate Scottish projects completed in the period 2019-2021 by 5pm on Friday 18th June. The panel are keen to receive entries from projects of all sizes – smaller projects will be recognised separately to large projects to ensure a level playing field.
Convenor of the awards judging panel, Ainslie McLaughlin, said: “The Scottish Civil Engineering Awards are a unique opportunity to showcase the success of Scotland’s civil engineers and to highlight the real difference civil engineering makes to the everyday life of Scotland’s citizens, enhancing wellbeing and the environment around us. The 2021 awards will be held virtually and, as a result, no entry fees will be charged. The panel are really looking forward to receiving this year’s entries and to once again celebrating Scotland’s proud engineering tradition.”
Entries will be considered by an expert industry panel with categories including the Greatest Contribution to Scotland; Best Infrastructure Project; Innovation; Building; Sustainability and Resilience; and Community.
