July 2018

On 6th June 2018, Abbey Pynford were the proud finalists at the Ground Engineering Awards 2018 for the prestigious ‘Geotechnical Value of up to £1M’ award.

Situated at the London Hilton, Park Lane, the event acknowledged some of biggest industry leaders and innovators. This year was of particular importance, as it was the 10th anniversary for the ceremony.

Claire Smith, editor of Ground Engineering said:

“The GE Awards is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year and every year the industry has demonstrated that however tight the budget and competitive the market, it can still deliver award-winning innovation, technical expertise and value engineering – and this year is no exception”.

The ‘Geotechnical Value of up to £1M’ award is designed to celebrate a ground engineering contract that’s stood above the rest for its innovation, sustainability, health and safety and of course quality.

Each entrant had to demonstrate the measures that were taken for their project to ensure it exceeded the intended standard.

Congratulations to all the winners!
