A huge stepping stone for Lloyd

The Jean Venables Medal is awarded to candidates nominated by their reviewers for showing exceptional qualities in their Technician Professional Review and showcases newly qualified technician members. Three are shortlisted and asked to present a project report to a judging panel.

The panel said Lloyd should be highly commended for delivering an impressive presentation and for his undoubted knowledge of the project in response to some tough questioning.

A thrilled Lloyd said: "this is a fantastic benchmark in my engineering career so far and a huge stepping stone to what I hope will be a successful career in what I love doing."

Lloyd works for Morrish Consulting Engineers and is currently studying at London South Bank University. He will receive the medal, a certificate and £500 at ICE's Annual Awards Ceremony in the autumn.

Recognising newly qualified incorporated members (IEng)

The Tony Chapman Medal is awarded to the best Member Professional Review candidate each year. The award promotes the role of newly qualified incorporated members (IEng).

Three shortlisted candidates presented their review project reports to a judging panel at the final at One Great George Street on 21 January.

Ivik, who works for 48.3 Scaffold Design Ltd in 2015 as a Principal Engineer and Director, emerged as the winner.

Ivik says: "When I was selected as one of three finalists, I was delighted and honoured but also had a burning desire to win such a prestigious award. Napoleon Hill said that the starting point of all achievements is desire and I'm a firm believer in this philosophy. I am very grateful to my Professional Review sponsors and the two Reviewers that nominated me. They gave me an opportunity to demonstrate my passion for temporary works and to give the Judging Panel an insight into the world of scaffolding."

"I celebrated with my wife and three young children. It was a wonderful feeling to see them dancing around the house and made this achievement even more memorable. Being awarded the Tony Chapman Medal has given me further determination to inspire others working in my field to become professionally qualified, continuously learn and improve."
