BTS James Clark Medal awards gathering 01 Sep 2015

TunnelTalk reporting

The BTS luncheon in celebration of the annual James Clark Medal Award for 2015 gathered together 13 of the award recipients at the Institution of Civil Engineers in Westminster, London, in September. Presented by the British Tunnelling Society, the James Clark Medal Award was introduced in 1981 in memory of the career in tunnelling of James Clark who worked for Charles Brand & Son and was instrumental in establishing the BTS in the early 1970s. The Medal Award is presented each year to a leading UK engineer or professional to recognize a major contribution to the tunnelling industry, a contemporary achievement or innovation within the industry, or responsibility for a large underground construction project.
