Hawkins’ Andrew Reeves Featured in Institute of Civil Engineers’ Bicentennial Album

The Institute of Civil Engineers has recently celebrated its bicentennial with an official book entitled: ICE 200: Shaping the World, and Hawkins is proud to be a select company featured within. Nathan Baker, ICE director of 

Engineering Knowledge has said of the two-year effort behind producing the book, “Projects selected for this book were agreed based on their impact across the globe and offer real insight into how infrastructure has truly shaped the world around us.”

Mr Andrew Reeves, a chartered civil engineer based in Hawkins’ Reigate Office, was interviewed for Hawkins’ page in the hardcover commemorative album, and attended the ICE ENGage event dedicated to the book’s launch.

Andrew is quoted several times throughout the page, and affirms that from a civil engineer’s perspective, accidents simply do not happen: “Nearly all construction‑related failures are down to poor workmanship, lack of supervision or defective design - and often a combination of all three.”

Several companies and organisations within the industry have been featured in the ICE 200 book, but Hawkins was the only firm selected with a predominant focus on forensic engineering. Hawkins’ page is aptly titled, Forensic Investigators, and showcases the time and effort spent by civil engineers working on a forensic level within the construction industry. Andrew Reeves details his own experience of returning to the scene of the collapse at Didcot A Power Station twenty-five times over the past two years.

Hawkins’ Civil Engineering department has been expanding and includes experts with backgrounds in extremely varied fields: geotechnical engineering, hydrology, structural engineering, acoustics and noise, highways engineering, and fire engineering.
