These brand new awards recognise firms that are leading the way in showcasing outstanding civil engineering practices.

Thomasons’ project for Next has already won a prestigious Institution of Structural Engineers regional award and was described by the judges as “an excellent example of engineering prowess.”

It involved complex and significant alterations to a single storey 35,000 sq. ft. retail unit to boost the floor space. A new mezzanine floor was added, which required raising the entire roof by 1.5 metres.
