The prestigious Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE)’s David Hislop award (also known as the Offshore award) has been won by our Senior Partner, Dr. Felix Schroeder, our Associates, Prof. Richard Jardine and Dr. Stavroula Kontoe, and their co-authors Dr. Róisín Buckley of University of Glasgow and Mr. Pedro Barbosa of Scottish Power. The authors received their award at the ICE publishing awards ceremony 2021. Their award-winning paper, “Full-scale observations of dynamic and static axial responses of offshore piles driven in chalk and tills”, is freely available through the ICE virtual library. Geotechnical Consulting Group congratulates all the authors for their achievement.
The paper is another publication resulting from the authors’ work on the Innovate UK sponsored Joint Industrial Project between Imperial College London, Scottish Power and Geotechnical Consulting Group on “Rationalising offshore wind-turbine pile design and assurance in difficult ground”.
