Recognising individual achievement

Showcasing the efforts of our members is important and helps recognise their individual expertise and contribution to the profession.

Pitch 200

South West Pitch 200 goes digital

Kathleen Hartono, a geotechnical graduate engineer with Buro Happold in Bath, is the winner of ICE South West Pitch 200.

Pitch 200 usually sees ICE members present a civil engineering-related idea to a live audience in just 200 seconds, but this year the competition moved online due to the coronavirus lockdown.

Kathleen used props around her home to make a video explaining the importance of using well-graded material as ground fill in construction and engineering works.

Her video attracted the most votes from members of the public to win the South West regional heat and she now goes forward to compete in the national final.

Ten civil engineers from across the South West took part in this year’s Pitch 200, with videos covering a wide range of topics including an overview of highways asset management using toilet paper; the basics of coastal flood defences with pasta and lentils; and the principles of modular construction explained through baking and chocolate biscuits.
