Celebrating civil engineers

Members of the public are being invited to vote for the region’s most iconic civil engineer in a poll to mark the 125th anniversary of the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) North East.

The search for the industry icon has been launched ahead of the landmark anniversary in 2016, with nominations being sought online.

People are invited to nominate those civil engineers they believe have made the greatest impact on the North East or who, having been born in the region, have had the most significant effect outside of the area.

Nominations, ideally including a reason for the choice, can be made at www.surveymonkey.com/s/ICE125
