GE Award Finalists

This year saw a record number of companies entering the Ground Engineering Awards and editor Claire Smith commented:

"The entries to the GE Awards never cease to amaze me in terms of the innovation and challenges successfully overcome by the UK's geotechnical sector - and this year is no exception.

The number and quality of entries this year means that just getting onto the shortlist is a real achievement in itself.

I am looking forward to seeing how these entries are presented at the live judging stage and then announcing them on the evening of the awards in July."

The winners will be announced on 5 July 2017 at a glamorous ceremony at the Hilton Park Lane, London, where over 800 of the industry elite will join together for an event filled with entertainment, celebration and networking.
