The awards are held every year to showcase the outstanding work done by civil engineers from across the region over the past two years. They are divided into three categories; projects with a total cost in excess of £5 million compete for the Centenary Award, those less than £5 million can apply for the Smeaton Award, and projects centred around studies and research are eligible for the Sir John Fowler Award.
In 2020 the Centenary Award was won by Whitby Piers Coast Protection Scheme, the Smeaton Award was won by Cottingham and Orchard Park Flood Alleviation Scheme Phase 1, and the Sir John Fowler Award went to the HS2 Impact Assessment.
A special virtual ceremony will take place on March 5, 2021.
