Shortlist success at New Civil Engineer Awards

August 11, 2020

RSK is a finalist in four categories at the upcoming New Civil Engineer Awards, Companies of the Year 2020: Leader in Health, Safety and Wellbeing; Excellence in Construction Delivery; Excellence in Concept Design and Planning; and Impact in Rail awards. Adding to the group success, RSK company CAN Geotechnical joins us on the shortlist with its standalone entries for the Leader in Health, Safety and Wellbeing; Excellence in Project Management; and Impact in Rail categories.

The awards are New Civil Engineer’s annual awards recognising and celebrating the most innovative, impactful and inspirational firms operating in civil engineering. Formerly the NCE100 Awards, this year the event has been renamed New Civil Engineer Awards, Companies of the Year 2020 to reflect better the event’s purpose and the future priorities of the industry.

RSK has been placed in the NCE100 power list for the last four years and was named a finalist for the NCE100 Health and Wellbeing Leader Award last year.

This year, it was RSK’s innovative health and well-being initiatives, including a Time to Change jigsaw, packs of safety, health, environment and quality playing cards to encourage conversations on well-being, and internal mental health support network that impressed the judges in the Leader in Health, Safety and Wellbeing category. It is RSK’s architecture and building services specialist ATP that has cemented strong entries in the Excellence in Concept Design and Planning, and Excellence in Construction Delivery categories.

The first ATP listing is for its innovative approach to design and construction, including the use of panelised cross-laminated timber construction methodology, which has reached the final for Excellence in Concept Design. ATP’s collaborative approach to design projects and innovative construction techniques, including the design of the Chequers Lane residential development in Barking, UK, stood out in the Excellence in Construction Delivery category.

Meanwhile, CAN Geotechnical’s ground stabilisation work on high-profile rail projects such as the £1.9 million stabilisation of Arley Tunnel and the flagship Filton 4 Track rail-widening scheme proved a strong candidate in the Impact in Rail category (for RSK group). CAN Geotechnical offered innovative methods and alternative solutions to deliver results to the highest standards while providing significant cost and programme savings.

“I would like to congratulate everyone who has made it onto the shortlist for the 2020 event,” said New Civil Engineer editor Claire Smith.

“This year has been a challenging one for the sector, so the awards night itself will not just be about recognising the leaders in the industry, it will also be about coming back together and networking once again in order to deliver ever better outcomes in 2021.”

Taking place on 26 February 2021 at The Brewery, London, the New Civil Engineer Awards will bring together the UK civil engineering community to recognise and celebrate the outstanding achievements accomplished this year across 20 award categories.

Good luck to all those shortlisted! The full shortlist can be seen on the New Civil Engineer website.
