Soil Engineering and the MVB JV win prestigious Ground Engineering Award


Soil Engineering Geoservices and the MVB JV have won the UK Project with a Geotechnical Value of between £500k and £1M at the 2015 GE Awards.

The winners of the 2015 GE Awards were announced on 10 June at the Hilton Park Lane, London.

Soil Engineering and the MVB JV’s entry was the West Ham Ground Investigation project, and after review by the panel of 43 expert judges, Soil Engineering and the MVB JV won in recognition of innovative ground investigation utilising multiple techniques in a single hole to investigate complex ground conditions as part of the construction phase of the Lee Tunnel. Boreholes had to be sunk through Victorian Sewer necessitating bespoke – and potentially unique – temporary works. Very challenging ground conditions investigated and close collaboration with the community including a hospital and fellow professionals.

The GE Awards brought together over 700 leaders in consultancy and contracting in the geotechnical engineering industry for a glittering afternoon of celebration, recognition and networking.

Claire Smith, editor of GE magazine commented:

“This year’s winners, as well as the finalists, have demonstrated how the geotechnics industry has continued to push forward innovation to benefit efficiency, improve safety and provide value. We introduced a new approach to judging this year with a greatly expanded panel of judges representing clients, academia, consultants and contractors from across the geotechnical sector and its supply chain. The live judging has reinforced the integrity of the awards with judges able to grill the candidates to clarify the details in their written submissions.”

Our thanks and congratulations go, not only to those involved with the award winning project, but to the whole Soil Engineering Team and their continued efforts and commitment to the business, without which we would not be able to enter these prestigious industry awards.
