The ICE are inviting entries for 2012 awards celebrating engineering excellence in London

The Institution of Civil Engineers has launched its 2012 London Engineering Awards and is inviting entries from firms involved in civil engineering projects in the Greater London area.

Categories include infrastructure, building, community and heritage and the greatest contribution to London. A new category is being launched for 2012. Called engineered in London, projects can be anywhere in the world providing they were designed in London. Previous winners include the London 2012 Velodrome, East London Line and the Lawn Tennis Association’s sports canopy.

Judges include Building’s technical editor Thomas Lane and Building columnist Chris Wise, director of Expedition Engineering. Other judges are Max Fordham, founding partner of M&E engineer Max Fordham, Alderman Michael Bear and Helen Nattrass, tunnel and substructure engineer with Sir Robert McAlpine. Firms must register their interest by 1 November with the deadline for entries 15 December. The awards will be held on 5 March at the ICE Westminster HQ.
