Local engineer, Gordon Davis, has been awarded Fellowship of the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) at a ceremony held in London on 17th September.
Respected internationally, ICE Fellowship is the highest grade of ICE membership and a benchmark for those practising at the top level within the civil engineering profession.
Only those with a position of responsibility in the planning, design, construction, maintenance or management of important engineering work can be awarded this level of membership.
Gordon Davis was presented with his Fellowship certificate by ICE President, Richard Coackley, at the ICE headquarters in Westminster, London.
Trish Johnson, ICE South West Regional Director, commented: ?Gaining ICE Fellowship is an exceptional achievement and I warmly congratulate Gordon on joining an elite group of civil engineers. This highly-respected accolade recognises a significant contribution to the civil engineering profession and seniority in the industry.?
Gordon currently works as Technical Director for global design and engineering consultancy, WSP UK Ltd, from their Exeter office.
He says he became an engineer after careers advice from Yeovil College. ?Over the last 25 years, civil engineering has given me a varied and challenging career, delivering the infrastructure that makes modern life safe and convenient.?
Some of his career highlights so far have been being involved in the implementation of South West Water?s ?Operation Clean Sweep? in coastal towns and villages across the south west and implementing a flood defence scheme to protect homes and businesses in Dorset.
Gordon added: ?I have also been privileged to be involved in the refurbishment work on the Cutty Sark in Greenwich, which was opened in the summer by Her Majesty the Queen.?
