RSK’s Roseanna Bloxham adjudicating the GE Awards

June 04, 2021

Roseanna Bloxham has been selected to join the judging panel for the 2021 Ground Engineering (GE) Awards. Roseanna is a senior geoenvironmental engineer at RSK Geosciences; she has almost 11 years’ industry experience and is a specialist in contaminated land risk assessments, earthworks, designing and managing intrusive site investigations and developing preliminary shallow and deep foundation recommendations. In 2018, Roseanna won the Best Young Brownfield Professional title at the Brownfield Briefing Awards and was named Best Woman Consultant at the European Women in Construction & Engineering Awards in 2017. “I was thrilled to receive the invitation to judge the GE Awards. I’ve been on the other side of award ceremonies, so it will be different to be a judge and have the chance to reward some terrific projects and people.”

The GE Awards celebrate the achievements of projects, people and businesses across geotechnical engineering. As in 2020, this year’s awards ceremony is a virtual event, taking place in November. The nominations include “amazing projects, technical excellence and forward-thinking geotechnical companies across the UK that are assessed by our independent panel of judges”.

Roseanna will be judging in all categories and the process will be carried out in two stages. In stage one, Roseanna and her co-judges will have about two weeks in July to review all the entries online and score them according to set criteria. Once the scoring is completed, marks will be averaged to create a shortlist.

Stage two involves combining online round tables with virtual face-to-face judging and takes place in mid-October. Finalists from a selection of categories will present virtually to the judging panel. The remaining ones will be judged via round-table discussions.

Roseanna is currently based in Johannesburg, South Africa, and manages the team there. Her role includes providing training and technical support and managing clients for RSK’s South African business. She also leads the Association of Geotechnical & Geoenvironmental Specialists’ Safety Working Group. “As the awards are virtual, I can judge from my base in South Africa, which makes things a lot easier. I’m excited to participate and to represent RSK in the process. I wish all entrants the best of luck.”
