Professional Excellence at Mott MacDonald

Chris Atkins, an associate engineer based at Mott MacDonald’s Manchester office, has won the prestigious Emerging Engineering Design Award. The New Civil Engineer (NCE) sponsored competition recognises the most inspiring, creative and passionate design engineers.

Chris received the award at a ceremony in central London, for his ground-breaking work in cathodic protection of the steel reinforced concrete substructures used on the UK motorway network. These supporting structures are often prone to corrosion, and preventing or arresting their degradation is vital as replacement or reconstruction would necessitate the closure of major roads.

Chris’s innovative solution, involving the installation of a string of anodes in a single hole along the length of each crossbeam, has been pioneered on the M4 western approach to London.

Mott MacDonald’s Chairman Peter Wickens said, “Chris’s work embodies our commitment to the delivery of professional excellence and sustainable solutions. We are delighted that his outstanding work and effort has been recognised with this important award, and we are very proud that Chris is a Mott MacDonald employee.”

Chris added, “It’s a great honour to receive this award and it also demonstrates how engineers can add significant value in terms of innovation to ensure service continuity for the UK’s transport infrastructure.“
