Celebrations all round at the ACSE Annual Awards

March 29, 2017

Last Thursday night I attended The ACSE Structural Engineering Awards, an evening full of inspirational project submissions, and a room full of leading consultancies and their talented engineers. The awards highlight the role of NSW based Structural Engineers and their contribution to the built environment in NSW, Australia and throughout the world and are a big cause for celebration in the industry.

The calibre of entries was higher than ever this year and every project highlighted the excellence that exists within the NSW Structural Engineering profession and showcased the role of Structural Engineering across a diversity of projects from the new Convention Centre in Darling Harbour through to an innovative new interlocking seating system at the new Lend Lease offices in Barangaroo.

The appreciation and professional support between consultancies and engineers is a humbling sight, Harry Partridge who picked up the Golden Award for his long-standing contribution to Engineering in NSW highlighted this when he acknowledged the important role that his team and staff at Partridge have had in his success.

Working together, supporting peers, recognising and celebrating success were all high on the agenda last night and I am looking forward to the “Down the Pub” series when over the course of the year we will start to hear from the award winners on the complexities and problems they overcome in the delivery of their award-winning projects.
