A* for Viv at AGS Awards

July 09, 2020

Congratulations to RSK Associate Technical Director Vivien Dent, who has received an award from the Association of Geotechnical and Geo-environmental Specialists (AGS). The AGS Awards, held annually by the association, recognise the hard work of AGS Working Group members helping to raise standards across the industry.

Vivien is the current leader of AGS’s Contaminated Land Working Group, which keeps members informed of developments to do with contaminated land and the environment to promote best practice and raise quality in the industry. Her hard work with the group, as well as the AGS Executive Committee, saw her recognised in the awards this year.

An excerpt in AGS Magazine explains: “Viv has led the Contaminated Land Working Group with vigour and enthusiasm and has always been an active member of the Executive Committee. Viv has been instrumental in helping the AGS to develop and deliver extremely high standard conferences and has persuaded high level speakers to be involved. She has also continually encouraged her working group to produce interesting and informative articles for the AGS Magazine helping to keep members aware of the working group activities, issues and hot topics. She is a great ambassador for the AGS and clearly enjoys her work and long may this continue.”

Roseanna Bloxham, RSK senior geo-environmental engineer, also received a commendation in this year’s awards for her work with the AGS Safety Working Group. “Rosey is a relatively new member of the Safety Working Group committee but has quickly established herself as a key member of the team,” said AGS.
