Consulting engineers and the engineering community are gearing up to celebrate innovation, quality, outstanding workmanship and professionalism in the engineering industry. The Consulting Engineers South Africa (CESA) Aon Engineering Excellence Awards will be held on 16 August 2017 at Vodacom World in Midrand.
The event is organised by CESA and sponsored by Aon South Africa and is said to be a highlight in the engineering and construction industry calendar. This year more than 47 submissions were received. The function is widely attended by engineering consultants, contractors, suppliers, academics, related institutions as well as client bodies from both the public and private sectors.
The awards provide CESA with the opportunity to showcase the extent to which local built-environment professionals provide the best in engineering expertise. The occasion is about recognising and thanking all the participants for their role played in the country’s infrastructure development.
According to CESA, an enormous responsibility rests on the shoulders of consulting engineers in delivering cost effective and appropriate engineering solutions. This challenge is compounded by the often unreasonable expectations of clients expecting unreasonable discounts on professional service fees whilst the risks related to overly aggressive bidding remain that of the service provider.
Aon South Africa’s role is to support a healthy consulting engineering industry whilst ensuring that at all times, the most professional and qualified teams are used to provide such services to minimise the risk exposure to both the consultant and the client every step of the way, says Terence Williams, CEO of Aon South Africa.
The Engineering Excellence Awards honour outstanding performance in a wide range of categories. These include large and small, as well as local and international projects. It also acknowledges visionary clients as well as future leaders in the industry through the Young Engineer of the Year award.
