An engineer from BakerHicks has won the Lifetime Achievement in Engineering Award at the prestigious Women in Construction & Engineering (WICE) Awards. The award, which recognises women whose contributions have ‘revolutionised the engineering industry’, was picked up by Geoff Cox, Managing Director of the Built Environment at BakerHicks. He has played a central role in delivering a range of major projects for market-leading clients in the pharmaceutical, research, defence and rail industries, while also assisting in the set-up and development of the company’s European offices. He has also mentored staff for many years taking them through from Graduate to Director level, with some describing him as ‘overly generous with his time and unselfish in taking pride in others’ achievements’. Three other BakerHicks employees were nominated as finalists in the WICE Awards, a scheme that recognises the most exemplary women in the construction industry across Europe. Melissa Lee-Johnson was a finalist in the Best Woman Facilities Manager category, Abby Neal in the Best Young Woman Engineer category, and Lauren Jones in the Best Woman Electrical and Mechanical Engineer.
