THE deadline for the Scottish Civil Engineering Awards 2020 has been extended for six weeks in response to the Covid-19 situation.
Teams now have until Monday 1st June to submit entries for Scotland’s top engineering and construction projects.
Organised jointly by CECA Scotland and ICE Scotland, the awards celebrate the best in civil engineering in Scotland. Past winners include the V&A Dundee and the Queensferry Crossing. As well as these sort of large scale projects, entries are equally encouraged from smaller initiatives making a difference in communities across Scotland. For the first time this year, entry is free for civils projects with a turnover of £2 million or less.
Construction and built environment professionals can nominate Scottish and international projects designed in Scotland and completed in 2019/2020 (or due for completion very soon) by 5pm on Monday 1st June 2020.
CECA Scotland chief executive Grahame Barn said, “With construction largely on pause in Scotland as the nation fights the Covid-19 epidemic, we have taken the decision to extend the deadline for the 2020 Scottish Civil Engineering Awards to give project teams extra time to get entries in given the unique circumstances we are now in. I know the Judging Panel are really looking forward to receiving this year’s entries and to celebrating the crucial role civil engineering plays in shaping Scotland, in enhancing our environment and our well-being and in delivering Scotland’s future economic success.”
This year’s categories include the Greatest Contribution to Scotland; Best Infrastructure Project; Innovation; Building; Sustainability and Resilience; Heritage and Restoration; and Community. Winners will be revealed at a ceremony in the autumn.
