John Gerrard was pleasantly surprised by an invitation from the IStructE for lunch at the RSA. It turned out he was the recipient of the Derrington Construction Award which recognises authors published in The Structural Engineer for construction projects. The paper was about the collaborative approach taken during the design and construction of WWF-UK‘s new home, the Living Planet Centre.
John enjoyed a leisurely lunch last week and received a medal from the Institution’s President in recognition of his efforts. He might not admit it, but it made his day!
