Event Information

The Fleming Award is awarded annually by the BGA to commemorate the life and work of Dr Ken Fleming, who was chief engineer at Cementation Skanska Foundation.

The Fleming Award competition is held at an evening meeting of the BGA each December, with entries being invited during the autumn of each year. The award recognises excellence in the practical application of geotechnics in a project or a part of a project, and is awarded to project teams who have worked on geotechnical projects that have been substantially completed within the two years prior to the award date of December. Each Team is expected to comprise between 3 and 6 people, at least one of whom must be a member of the BGA.

The event is sponsored by Cementation Skanska.

This event is planned as an in-person event, and will also be webcast live - use the booking link below to get access for on-line viewing

Submitting teams typically include representatives from Clients, Main Contractors, Consulting Engineers, Specialist Contractors and so on. The award is presented to the Project Team which most demonstrates excellence in geotechnical design & construction. There is an emphasis on teamwork across the different disciplines involved in the project, innovation is also a strong consideration.

A list of previous winners and finalists can be viewed HERE.

At the event:

  • Each team will give a short presentation (about 20 minutes with 5 minutes of questions afterwards). After the presentations have been completed, the judges will retire to consider their verdict.
