The medal is awarded to candidates nominated by their reviewers for showing exceptional qualities in their Technician Professional Review. Three are shortlisted and asked to present a project report to a judging panel. The Panel said he should be highly commended for delivering an impressive presentation and his undoubted knowledge of the project in response to some tough questioning.
Jean Venables was ICE's first woman President (2009/10). She used her presidential term to raise the profile of technician members and is still working to promote them.
Lloyds works for Morrish Consulting Engineers on structural designs and detailed CAD drawings, including models for analysis on larger projects. He is also a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) ambassador working with local schools and colleges. He is studying part-time for a BEng (Hons) in Civil Engineering at London South Bank University.
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."
"Following the news of the nomination, I researched Jean Venables and I was delighted to see the work she did in her presidency to promote Technician members. I hope to channel this ethos as much as possible. I would like to thank Morrish for all their support through this process and in my career so far, to the reviewers who put me forward for this award and everyone else who helped me become a Technician member of the ICE."
Lloyd will receive the medal, a certificate and £500 at ICE's Annual Awards Ceremony in the autumn.
