CESA and Aon Celebrating Engineering Excellence
Consulting Engineers South Africa (CESA) is gearing up to celebrate Engineering Excellence in its annual CESA Aon Engineering Awards showcasing innovation, quality, outstanding workmanship and professionalism in the consulting engineering sector.
The CESA Aon Engineering Awards has been dubbed ‘a feast of engineering talent and rewards an explosion of engineering plans and projects that provide the economic growth that leads to better lives.
Sponsored by one of the leading global Risk Advisors Insurance brokerage Aon South Africa, the Awards are a platform to showcase the important role that infrastructure plays in the sustainable development of our country. The Awards focus on engineers and the excellence in service they provide to their clients in providing buildings, structures and infrastructure that lasts.
According to Aon, “CESA members play a pivotal role in South African society and in the greater South African economy. The progress of this country and its sustainability is touched on a daily basis by some facet of engineering. Without this application of the sciences, the vast majority of development and upliftment we need would not happen. The role that engineers play in terms of the wellbeing of our citizens is immense.”
An adjudicator once commented that it was a privilege to be on the judging panel of the Awards and be exposed to the creativity, tenacity, skill and sometimes sheer determination of this industry.
Engineers solved the cholera problem related to contaminated water, in the 19th century, designed and built intricate highway interchanges in the tightest of spaces, suspended bridges from cables, converted sunlight into electrical power and sometimes indulged in a round or two of snakes and ladders. No challenge seems too big or too complex for this talented group of people, who, like magicians, make the impossible, possible.
This year’s CESA Aon Awards Gala Dinner will be held at Vodacom World in Midrand on the17th August, 2016.
