Stephen gets it write

Stephen, who lives in Seaham, is part of the Tyne & Wear Integrated Transport Authority (TWITA) team working on the £260 million New Tyne Crossing to monitor the project and ensure it is completed to agreed standards. He received the Jas White Memorial Prize from the Institute of Clerks of Works and Construction Inspectors (ICWCI) for his article on the project entitled Going Underground in the Institute’s Journal Site Recorder.

Stephen said: “I accepted this award on behalf of the TWITA team who helped me put the article together. I am pleased to be part of such a strategic and historic project for the North East. Projects of this magnitude and complexity are few and far between.”

TWITA project director Paul Fenwick, said: “It shows how much pride our team have in the project that they are keen to promote it in international professional journals.

The article will be read by construction professionals around the world and will help to promote the North East too.” The Jas White prize is named after a former life member of the Institute and is chosen by his son Alan (Hon. FICWCI). Mr White said: "As a structural engineer, I am very interested in this type of project. When reading all of the articles submitted for the award it was 'Going Underground' by Steve Telford (LICWCI) that caught my attention the most and that I considered was the most deserving of the award."
