NCE Companies of the Year 2019 : finalist

March 2019
We are very pleased to have been shortlisted for Diversity Leader of the Year in the 2019 NCE Companies of the Year awards — diversity is important to us.

Managing Director, Sebastian Wood: “We want to be the best engineering consultancy. To be the best we need to harness the diverse experiences, ideas and visions of the future that come with having a diverse team. We are our staff. They are the source of success for any company — the more diverse they are the better … experientially, ethnically, culturally, and in terms of gender …”

“And we want to appeal to young engineers from all walks of life. We need their inspiration, talent and dynamism — society needs it. Diversity is the key.”

The annual NCE Companies of the Year awards are given in recognition of innovation and impact in civil engineering. Whitby Wood first made the NCE100 rankings in 2018, just two years after the practice’s founding, and we are an NCE100 company again for 2019. Winners of the individual awards will be announced on 30 April at The Brewery in London.

The shortlists can be viewed online here.
