Nominations now open for ACE Consultancy and Engineering Awards 2023

Hannah Mehr, Apprentice of the Year 2022

Nominations are now open for the Association for Consultancy and Engineering’s (ACE) gala awards ceremony, the Consultancy and Engineering Awards 2023.

This in-person evening event will celebrate the outstanding achievements of our industry, at Leonardo Royal London Tower Bridge on Thursday 18 January 2024. 

The Consultancy and Engineering Awards champion excellence in people, projects and companies from the world of engineering, consultancy and the built environment.

Stephen Marcos Jones, CEO of ACE, said: “In January this year we held our 2022 consultancy and engineering awards after a two-year absence. 

"It was a fantastic occasion with over three hundred people turning out to celebrate all that is good about the built environment sector, so I am pleased to announce the next edition of these prestigious awards to recognise, share and highlight achievement.”

Last year, Hannah Mehr, a data scientist for Arup, was named apprentice of the year and praised the Consultancy and Engineering Awards for highlighting the important role of apprenticeships in the sector.

“It [the award] validates the fact that apprenticeships are really important to the future of the industry,” she said. 

“Personally, winning the award was validation of my decision to leave school at 16, which was unheard of in my school.

“On an apprenticeship, you’re thrown into projects with actual responsibilities and the industry recognising that through ACE is brilliant.”
