Menard Named Contractor Of The Year at 2023 Ground Engineering Awards

Contractor of the Year - GE Awards 2023

Following a record year for entries, the deserving winners of the 2023 GE Awards were announced on Wednesday 12 July 2023 at the JW Marriott Grosvenor House Hotel, London. The GE Awards brought together close to 1,000 clients, contractors, designers and geotechnical experts for a glamorous evening of celebration, recognition and networking.

After review by our panel of over 70 expert judges, Vibro Menard Limited won in recognition of “its strong financial performance and drive for success, while also supporting its staff.  The judges felt the contractor clearly cares about its employees and has a good team ethic. It has invested in its workforce and worked on staff retention. The company has an exemplary safety culture backed up by strong stats. It embraces new technologies and has worked on refining existing solutions. It has also made impressive CO2 savings through fuel saving initiatives and refined project designs where needed”.

Nia Kajastie, editor of Ground Engineering, said:

“This was the biggest GE Awards ceremony that we’ve ever held, with almost 1,000 guests! What started as a small lunchtime gathering 15 years ago has grown into a huge celebration of the ground engineering sector. I think that is a clear sign of how proud the sector is of the work it does – and it truly deserves this recognition.

“We received more than 300 submissions across the 19 award categories that could be entered directly. This year was another record-breaker, and the overall quality of entries was very high.

“A lot of the hard work fell onto our expert judges, who went through all the entries and took part in long days of face to face presentations. We could not have done this without them.

“So, thank you to our judges, as well as our sponsors, supporters and partners for their continued support. And a huge congratulations to all the deserving winners from the GE team!”
