The shortlist for this year’s Consultancy and Engineering Awards was revealed back in August (see list below). Speaking this week, Darrell Matthews, director of membership and business engagement at ACE, said: “We are delighted with the positive response to this year’s awards which have been among our most popular to date. I hope that the industry will join us online this Thursday at 12 noon as we discover who has come out on top. It's also an opportunity to celebrate industry success - something that is all the more impressive this year in that it was delivered in difficult and uncertain times.”

The headline sponsors of the awards are Bentley Systems and Griffiths & Armour and the category sponsors are WSP and Arcadis. Once again this year, Infrastructure Intelligence is the media partners for the awards.
