International Award Success for McConnell Dowell

McConnell Dowell is pleased to announce that it has been awarded the 2017 Brunel Medal by The Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) for the Brisbane Ferry Terminals project.

The medal was presented to McConnell Dowell Project Manager, Todd Cook and other members of the project team at a ceremony held in London earlier this month.

Formed over 200 years ago, ICE is the world's oldest professional engineering association, and their annual awards recognise outstanding civil engineering achievements and contribution to the profession and the Institution. The Brunel Medal is awarded to recognise excellence in civil engineering.

In presenting the Medal ICE President Professor Tim Broyd said,

"The project has redefined the possibilities in ferry terminal design, proudly engages the community in its unique engineering response, and reunites the Brisbane community like never before with its most defining natural asset - the Brisbane River."

The accompanying picture was taken in the world-renowned ICE Building at One Great George Street London. The building is home to the world's largest dedicated civil engineering collection containing over 130,000 books and articles dating back to 1836.
