IHE attends 20th Highways Awards Spectacular
- Wednesday November 1, 2023
This year saw the 20th Highways Awards – formerly the Highways Magazine Awards for Excellence – take place in front of a record crowd in central London. The IHE was honoured to attend as one of the event’s legacy sponsors, continuing the very strong relationship between our two organisations.
IHE president Martin Polland had the privilege of chairing the judging panel, accompanied this year by senior vice president Katharine Kelly, who will have the honour of assuming the role of chair of the judging panel next year. Also on the judging panel was Stephen Webb, past president of the IHE. The award ceremony was held on 11 October and was once again held at the Park Plaza Hotel in Westminster – and was a truly spectacular event.
The Institute was once again pleased to be sponsoring the Apprentice of the Year Award and would like to congratulate this year’s winner Katie Withers from Durham County Council.
Joining the other guests on the IHE table were the winners of the institute’s own awards, Best Submission of the Year for Engineering Technician (EngTech) – Calvin Sharp, Incorporated Engineer (IEng) Bradley Doran and Chartered Engineer (CEng) Deepa Varma.
Martin Polland presented them with their award during the evening, congratulating each recipient on the quality of their professional review submission.
Mr Polland said: ‘It has been fantastic to once again see our award winners for best CEng, IEng and Eng Tech submissions attend this year’s Highways Awards.
‘The award winners should be proud of their achievements of becoming professionally qualified, which I’m sure will assist their careers in the future.’
