- Innovation in Project Management award for our Digital Construction consultancy achievements and innovation including our Virtual Reality representations of civil engineering and development projects, and wider client and public engagement.
- Excellence in Climate Resilience Award for the Tree Aid Bongo River Trees project where we funded and provided pro bono services to help realise a sustainable water management and replanting solution and management program.
PJ Rudden, RPS Director Marketing and Gas attended from Dublin for the SGN Robotics project, joined by Richard Bingham, RPS Associate and Daniel Hogan, RPS Senior Scientist from Belfast on behalf of Stephen Henderson, RPS Marketing & Graphics Manager, and Dr. Mike Shaw, RPS Managing Director Northern Ireland for our Digital Construction services, and Project Leaders Michel de Vré and André de Wit from our Amsterdam and Leerdam offices respectively for the Tree Aid Bongo River Trees project.
