FPS Awards – Open for Submissions!

Submissions are invited for The Federation of Piling Specialists (FPS) Awards 2022, which is open to entries from Members and Associate Members.

Being held Friday 7th October 2022, at the luxury 5-star InterContinental Hotel on London’s Park Lane, the FPS Awards celebrate the outstanding achievements of individuals and companies of the FPS within the Ground Engineering industry.

Alongside FPS Chair John Chick, this year’s event will be hosted by TV presenter and actor, Alexis Conran, who will share insights into how people are psychologically manipulated into performing actions or divulging confidential information.

From a prosecco and canapé drinks reception, the evening will continue with a three-course gourmet meal in the hotel’s grand ballroom before the prestigious Awards Ceremony.

An exclusive after party will conclude the evening, in the hotel’s newly refurbished Park Lane Studio and will give guests a chance to celebrate the rest of the evening in style, whilst enjoying live musical entertainment, drinks, and dancing.

The Awards categories are:

  • Safety Innovation Award
  • Efficiency Through Technology Award
  • Carbon Reduction Award
  • Early Career Award
  • Lifetime Achievement Award [NEW]
  • Chairs’ Award
