Ground Investigation Project of the Year - GE Awards 2019
This category is for a ground investigation project that stands out in terms of its credentials in innovation, quality, sustainability, health and safety and value engineering. Projects entered into this category should have elements within the design and delivery that were focused on minimising risk from unexpected ground conditions during the construction phase and should be able to demonstrate the steps taken to achieve this.
The entrant must explain and provide evidence to demonstrate what exceptional measures were taken or innovative techniques used to result in the project being delivered above the expected standard.
The ground investigation must be completed at the time of entry submission but it is not essential for the project for which the ground investigation was undertaken to have started or have been completed.
- Innovation in planning and delivery of a ground investigation to generate quality geotechnical or geoenvironmental parameters for the design and delivery stage of the work
