8 Mar 2016Royal HaskoningDHV has been shortlisted for the International Impact Award as part of the New Civil Engineer’s NCE100 programme, in recognition of the company’s extensive work across the globe.
The NCE100, due to be published in May, will showcase excellence in civil engineering practice by ranking the top 100 firms against the NCE’s five core pillars – Future Engineer, Future Technology, Technical Excellence, Engineering Equality and World View.
As part of the programme, the NCE is also recognising firms that excel in 15 core areas through a series of awards. Based on employer and employee feedback, the awards rank and reward firms that showcase and inspire civil engineering at its best.
One example of Royal HaskoningDHV’s international work is the project team working on the major coastal embankment improvement project in Bangladesh, which represents a major contribution in engineering to the lives and livelihoods of millions of people living within the delta region. As part of a $2 billion project, Royal HaskoningDHV is providing the engineering design and project management for the first phase of construction, which will upgrade over 600km of embankments to protect some 42 million coastal residents and their communities.
Craig Huntbatch, UK Resident Director at Royal HaskoningDHV commented: “We are delighted to have been shortlisted for this award in recognition of how we provide our engineers with the best opportunities in today’s global market. Forty five percent of our overall turnover is earned outside of the UK and the Netherlands, and we dedicate a huge proportion of our work to actively export best practices around the world. Examples such as the Bangladesh project highlight just how much we focus on enhancing society across the globe.”
