Major nuclear project wins at ICE South West Awards

A multi-million pound nuclear development and a bridge reconstruction in Dorset have been crowned two of the winners at the ICE South West Awards.

The ICE South West Awards celebrate projects and people who convey the significant contribution made by civil engineers to their local communities.

The Wool Old Bridge Reconstruction (Dorset) received two awards on the night, the award for a re-engineered project less than £3m and the People's Choice Award, after receiving more than 3,200 votes.

Nuclear project Hinkley Point C - Earthworks Unit 1 Heatsink also won two awards, one for a new build project over £3m and the Showcase Award.

A panel of industry experts visited all the shortlisted projects for on-site reviews.

Saeed Mojabi, Chair, ICESW Judging Panel and Director, Infrastructure West, at Arup, said:

"It has been amazing to see how innovative some of these projects have been. People are working on some of these projects out of love of engineering, rather than to make money."

As well as civil engineering projects, individual civil engineers were recognised by the awards.

Graduate of the Year went to Rosheena Jugdhurry, while Elizabeth Tripptree won Apprentice of the Year.
