21 January 2022

ICE Yorkshire and Humber has released a shortlist of pioneering projects to be recognised at its annual Yorkshire and Humber Awards 2022. 

Top engineering projects shortlisted for Yorkshire and Humber Awards
Murdoch’s Crossing won the Centenary Award in 2021.

ICE has revealed the shortlist of pioneering projects that will be recognised at this year's Yorkshire and Humber Awards.

Eighteen projects from the region have been shortlisted in the awards programme across two categories: the Centenary Award and the Smeaton Award. The winners will be revealed during a live awards ceremony along with the winner of the Company Award, and STEM Ambassador of the Year Award.

The awards are held every year to showcase the outstanding work done by civil engineers from across the region over the past two years.

They are typically divided into three categories: projects with a total cost in excess of £5 million compete for the Centenary Award, those costing less than £5 million can apply for the Smeaton Award, and projects centered around studies and research are eligible for the Sir John Fowler Award.

However, the Sir John Fowler Award won't be awarded this year due to a lack of entries.
