Triple success for RoC Consulting at the IStructE Awards

November 18, 2021

RSK group business RoC Consulting was thrilled to achieve outstanding success at the 2021 Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE) North West Awards this month, winning no less than three prestigious awards for the company’s hard work.

The team received accolades for its work on the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Garden Bridgewater (medium project), the RHS Garden Bridgewater (most sustainable project) and the Airport City Manchester bridge (small project), seen above, at the Lancashire and Cheshire Regional Group Awards, which were held at the Radisson Edwardian Hotel in Manchester on Friday, 12 November.

Jon Smith BSc (Hons) CEng MIStructE was the design director on both the Airport City bridge and RHS Bridgewater Welcome Building projects.

Judges received submissions on an A1 noticeboard that detailed the project, drawings and technical aspects, and awards were given by project size, with the bridge winning under the small project category and the RHS Garden Bridgewater under the medium sized project category.

RoC Consulting had a triple celebration as the company also won the most sustainable project award for the RHS Garden Bridgewater Welcome Building.

Rory O’Connor, Managing Director of RoC Consulting, said, “Winning three awards left us all speechless on the night, and we thought this has got to be a record. Needless to say, the table celebrated the success, and we look forward to celebrating with the entire team in the next few weeks.

“Of course, we could not have done this on our own, so we take this opportunity to congratulate the entire team for this outstanding achievement; it is fantastic recognition for the many years of commitment and dedication RoC has demonstrated to the construction and property sector,” he added.

Manchester-based RoC Consulting joined RSK in 2020 and provides civil, structural and geoenvironmental consultancy advice to the property and construction industries.

The business has a strong reputation for quality, delivery, innovation and for providing pragmatic strategic advice.

We are extremely proud of such a terrific achievement!
