Hexham Engineer Achieves Professional Award

An engineer from Hexham has been awarded Technician Membership of the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), the oldest professional engineering association in the world.

Jamie Carrol, works as an assistant quantity surveyor for Bam Nuttall in Hull, and was presented his membership certificate by ICE President Andrew Wyllie at a special ceremony held at ICE’s headquarters in Westminster, London.

Jamie, who has also this year been named as a regional finalist for the Emerging Engineers Award, has achieved a professionally qualified grade of membership which is internationally recognised and highly valued.

“I am delighted to be awarded Technician Membership of the ICE,” he said.

“I was part of the Blyth Offshore Wind farm Demonstrator project team which was the first gravity base foundation to be used for an offshore wind farm, showing the difference that civil engineering can make throughout the UK.”

The ICE represents over 92,000 civil engineers and technicians across the world who design, build and maintain transport, water, energy, waste and flood infrastructure.

ICE North East regional director, Penny Marshall, said: “Achieving ICE Technician Membership is a significant personal and career achievement and I congratulate Jamie on his success.

“Jamie joins the ICE at a significant time – our bicentenary year. We are proud to celebrate our members and how their work in civil engineering transforms people’s lives for the better and safeguards the future for their families.”

Jamie added: “To anyone looking to become an engineer, my advice would be to choose something you are passionate about where you can make a difference to the world around you. For me, civil engineering has been a great way to achieve this.”
