CESA and AON celebrating engineering excellence

18 June 2018

Consulting Engineers South Africa (CESA) and the engineering community are again gearing up to celebrate innovation, quality, outstanding workmanship and professionalism

in the engineering industry.

The CESA Aon Engineering Excellence Awards dubbed the ‘Oscars of the Engineering World’ will be held on the 15th August 2018 at Vodacom World, in Midrand. This prominent industry event sponsored by Aon South Africa is one of the highlights in the engineering and construction industry calendar and the 2018 Awards promise to be better than ever.

This year, CESA expanded the award’s categories to include ‘The Lifetime Industry Achievement Award’, a discretionary award to recognise an individual who has contributed significantly to the development and promotion of the Consulting Engineering Industry in South Africa during their lifetime.

This year over 46 submissions were received.  “The Awards are about recognising and thanking all the participants for their role played in the country’s infrastructure development, a key requirement for economic growth of our country”, proclaims CESA CEO Chris Campbell.

Aon South Africa,Business Unit Manager for Professional Risks, Meggyn Marotsays that the dynamic environment in which engineers operate means that they are faced with so much more than the challenges of design implementation or complex project management. Today’s professional engineering consultant is faced with many threats to business health and growth beyond what has ever been experienced before. Proactive risk planning and pre-empting of the range of interlinked threats faced by engineers cannot be over emphasised.   

These prestigious awards provide CESA and its Member Firms, the opportunity to boast about the extent of innovation and expertise in an industry where engineering excellence is rewarded above profit margins. They are about thanking all the participants for their important contribution to the growth of our country, given the pivotal role that CESA member firms play in the South African society and economy.
