ICE North East is inviting engineering firms and organisations from across the region to enter its prestigious Robert Stephenson Awards.

Nominations are open to projects completed or substantially completed in the last two years. There are three categories - large, medium and small, for projects valued at more than £5 million, between £1-5 million and those with a value up to £1 million.

Nominations will also be sought for Volunteer of the Year and STEM Ambassador of the Year.

The awards are back to a live event this year which means project team’s get the extra recognition they deserve. The winners will be announced during an annual dinner and awards ceremony on Friday, 8 April 2022 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Newcastle.

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

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