A competition that recognises impressive civil engineering projects in Yorkshire and Humber is now open for entries.

ICE Yorkshire and Humber is inviting engineering firms and organisations from across the region to enter the 67th annual awards.

Projects with a value of more than £5 million are eligible for the Centenary Award, those with a value of less than £5million can be entered into the Smeaton Award, and the Sir John Fowler Award, sponsored by YORhub, is open to research projects and studies.

Awards are open to projects completed or substantially completed in the last two years. Nominations are also sought for the Company Award and STEM Ambassador of the Year.

The winners will be announced at the ICE Yorkshire and Humber Awards ceremony and dinner taking place on Friday, 25 February 25 2022, at the Leeds Marriott Hotel.

Steena Nasapen-Watson, ICE Yorkshire and the Humber regional director, said: “The annual awards recognise the delivery of effective infrastructure projects and promote the very best of civil engineering across the Yorkshire and the Humber.

“It is important to showcase the outstanding work in the art of civil engineering throughout Yorkshire and the surrounding areas, as these projects contribute so much to society and improve people’s everyday lives.”
