Graduate Engineer Named as Finalist for Nethercot Prize
We are excited to announce that our Graduate Engineer, Livia Guimarães has been named as a finalist for the Nethercot Prize as part of the awards for the International Association for Bridge and Structural Engineering (IABSE).
The Nethercot Prize is awarded annually to an early career architect, engineer or designer (expected to be under 35 and based in the UK) in recognition of the quality of a written paper submitted for judging.
As a Graduate Engineer at Pell Frischmann, Livia submitted her paper on our work with Space House. Space House is an icon of mid-sixties brutalist architecture which is being reimagined as a modern workspace for a city’s population that has grown by nearly 1.5M since it was originally constructed.
Designed in 1968 by George Marsh, Richard Seifert and C.J. Pell and Partners (now Pell Frischmann), this structure is an evolutionary development of its taller, older sibling, Centre Point built five years earlier.
On learning of her shortlisting, Livia said:
As a young engineer, being shortlisted to the 2023 Nethercot Prize reminds me of how important it is to be surrounded by a team that constantly encourages me to put myself up for challenges even when they daunting at first! I look forward to going to the awards ceremony and celebrating an evening of exciting projects with the other nominees.”
We look forward to the awards ceremony on 16th November 2023 at the Milne Medal Lecture.
Good luck Livia!
