National property, construction and infrastructure consultancy Pick Everard has been shortlisted for three awards in the 2020 New Civil Engineering Awards.
Director of HR, Elizabeth Hardwick-Smith, has been shortlisted for this year’s ‘Leading in Talent Management’ award, which looks to recognise those that are investing in the long-term development of staff through lifelong learning and actively seeking to bring new talent into the sector.
Marie Hodgson, principal transportation engineer, has been nominated for the ‘Excellence in Concept Design and Planning’ award – which recognises firms doing the most to help get projects off the ground by working with owners and operators to conceive and refine the concept, help secure the financing and funding, win public support and gain planning approval.
Director Peter Chappell has also been shortlisted in the ‘Impact in Water’ category, which focuses around evidence of firms tackling water scarcity through better demand management and the creation of new resources.
Duncan Green, managing partner at Pick Everard, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have representatives from Pick Everard shortlisted for three NCE awards this year. Our staff are hugely important to us and it is fantastic that they are being recognised as industry experts.
“Elizabeth, Marie and Peter are all very talented in their respective fields and we wish them the best of luck at the upcoming awards.”
Due to the impact of COVID-19, the 2020 awards will take place on Friday 26 February 2021 at The Brewery in London and will bring the UK civil engineering community together to celebrate the outstanding achievements accomplished across the sector this year.
Duncan added: “Having three members of the Pick Everard team being considered for such prestigious industry awards is testament to our continual investment and commitment to our workforce. We pride ourselves in creating a working environment that champions the unique skills and talents of every individual that works at Pick Everard and we are fortunate to have such a hardworking and dedicated team of people.”
The NCE Awards is New Civil Engineer’s annual awards recognising and celebrating the most innovative, impactful and inspirational firms operating within the civil engineering sector.
