The Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation (Yorkshire & the Humber) Awards 2017 took place last Friday.
A-one+ swept the board winning 2 out of 4 awards and a highly commended in a third. These awards are designed to recognise the best young engineering talent and best projects delivered in the region, in the highways and transportation sector.
In the ‘Small Project of the Year’ category for schemes under £1m, our multi award winning M62, M180 and M621 Sculp Gantry Lighting was one again successful, picking up the winners shield. Judges commented on the whole-life cost efficiency benefits offered by this innovative solution, which we transferred from another industry into highways.
In this same category, our more recent A64 Askham Bryan Junction Ultigrip scheme, and A63 South Cave to Welton 6000T scheme were commended by the judges.
The regional ‘Young Professional of the Year’ award was won by our own Thomas Coleman. His submission focused on work he has carried out to improve GIS and asset data management with the judges commented that it stood head and shoulders above the rest. In what has been a busy few months he has also recently won the CIHT (Yorkshire & the Humber) Young Professionals Presentation award after presenting a technical paper to a panel of industry experts and then negotiating a challenging question and answer session. As the regional winner, he now goes forward to the national presentation final in November in London, where he will be up against 10 other regional winners.
On what was a very successful night for A-one+, Joel Moore was recognised as highly commended in the ‘Apprentice of the Year’ category.
This recent success takes our 2017 external award haul up to 8 in total so far and we are proud that are that our innovative project work and people development continues to receive external industry recognition.
