Murphy Surveys Monitoring Team Recognised by the New Civil Engineer and Shortlisted for 3 Tunnelling Awards
We’re very excited to announce that the Murphy Surveys monitoring team have been shortlisted for no less than 3 New Civil Engineer (NCE) Tunnelling Awards. The internationally recognised awards celebrate global tunnelling expertise and project excellence. The team have received 2 shortlists for the Innovation in Instrumentation and Monitoring Award, as well as a shortlist for the Community Engagement Award.
“We’re both humbled and honoured to be acknowledged by the judges of the NCE Tunnelling Awards, and our efforts recognised in two very prestigious categories,” commented Colin Murphy Director, Murphy Surveys. “As a company we pride ourselves on being at the forefront of technological innovation, but it’s how we apply innovation to the projects we work on that is key. The tunnelling environment is complex and every scenario is different, presenting its own unique challenges. This award is a true testament to the hard work, dedication and commitment of our monitoring team to raise the standard across monitoring projects in the UK, and in giving our clients complete confidence to minimise risk and safeguard the lives of those working on and surrounding construction works.”
“As well as the two Innovation Awards, we also received a shortlist for the Community Engagement Award, recognising our outstanding commitment to a recent community engagement initiative providing a stepping stone for people leaving prison and aiming make a difference to their lives. Our teams are continually looking at ways in which to engage with and make a lasting impact on local communities in and around the projects we work on,” concludes Colin.
New Civil Engineer editor Mark Hansford said: “The Tunnelling Festival is a great opportunity to gather together the brightest minds in the industry. From Tideway to Crossrail there are some really big tunnelling projects nearing completion at the moment. It is a great event to celebrate the work that has been ongoing over the last few years and is in the pipeline for the future.”
The NCE Tunnelling Awards will take place as part of the NCE Tunnelling Festival on 6th December at the Grange Tower Bridge Hotel in London.
