Winner of the ICES 2016 Publishing Prize

The Chartered Institute of Civil Engineering Surveyors (ICES) has recently announced that the institution’s first ever Publishing Prize has been awarded to David Wells, EAME’s Technical Director for Iraq. The article, concerning the rehabilitation of Iraq’s deep sea ports, was published in the March 2016 issue of the Civil Engineering Surveyor and was judged to have won the geospatial engineering category.

2016 was the first qualifying year for the new prize, which aims to recognise the best articles published from ICES publications,. Judging panels, drawn from the institution’s Commercial Management Practices Committee and Geospatial Engineering Practices Committee, considered several criteria, including the use of new and existing technology, thought leadership and writing style.
