Launched in 2008, ACE’s annual Engineering Excellence Awards showcase the finest achievements of consultancy and engineering firms and the innovation that makes the industry crucial to local, national and global economies.
A distinguished panel of judges come together to assess individual entries and judge against high expectations for original and unique design work, a future value beyond what is normal, and social, economic and environmental sustainability, and successful fulfillment of the client’s needs.
The expert judges are bought together from the fields of engineering, architecture, media and academia, as well as from within government. They then evaluate aspects of the projects holistically, but also the less tangible wow factor that a project may have with local communities and the wider public.
