Quantum quashes competition: Second award for RSK geophysics

June 17, 2019

RSK’s geophysics team is excited to announce that it has won the studies and research award at the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) West Midlands awards for the second year running.

The accolade was presented for the ‘Quantum Technology – Potential for Railway Infrastructure’ scheme, and jointly received by RSK and its partners, the University of Birmingham, Atkins and Network Rail. The project looked at market opportunities to detect and assess the condition of assets buried below the railway network.

Last year, the RSK geophysics team won for the FINDIT project that developed non-destructive geophysical methods to detect factors that are critical to the maintenance and development of subsurface infrastructure including telecoms, water and gas supply pipes.

The annual ICE awards recognise the top built environment projects and professionals across the West Midlands region. This year, more than 300 members and guests attended the awards ceremony at the Macdonald Burlington Hotel, Birmingham, UK, on Wednesday, 22 May.

The studies and research award celebrates conceptual ideas developed through study and research, incorporated into practical solutions and recommendations. The judges were particularly impressed with the use of non-intrusive technology to help minimise disruption to railway passengers.

ICE West Midlands regional director Jo Barnett said: “This is an exciting time for civil engineering in the region and you don’t have to travel far to see the many and varied infrastructure projects taking shape. It is important for us to acknowledge and celebrate the achievements of our civil engineers whose hard work and dedication can often go unnoticed.”

RSK associate director Matt Stringfellow added, “Once again, a big thanks to everyone involved in the project. It is fantastic for RSK and the geophysics team to receive such recognition, especially for the second year running.”
