Geoff Cox, managing director of the built environment at BakerHicks, has collected the Lifetime Achievement in Engineering Award at the Women in Construction & Engineering (WICE) Awards.
Recognising those whose contributions have revolutionised the engineering industry, the award was given to Geoff Cox for his contributions in delivering major projects for market-leading clients in the pharmaceutical, research, defence and rail industries, whilst also helping to set up and develop BakerHicks European offices.
Geoff also mentored many staff throughout his time at BakerHicks, taking them through from graduate to director level and has been described as ‘overly generous with his time and unselfish in taking pride in others’ achievements’.
Commenting on his award, Geoff said: “It’s a real honour to have your work recognised in this way. I’ve been privileged to be involved in some fantastic projects over my time at BakerHicks and can genuinely say I love what I do.”
An additional three BakerHicks employees were nominated at the WICE Awards. Melissa Lee-Johnson was recognised in the Best Woman Facilities Manager category, whilst Abby Neal was nominated for the Best Young Woman Engineer category and Lauren Jones was a finalist in the Best Woman Electrical and Mechanical Engineer category.
Martin Lubieniecki, Managing Director of BakerHicks, added: “I’m enormously proud of all four nominees, they are all perfect examples of the culture we promote within BakerHicks of encouraging and supporting people to strive for the best.
“We invest in our people and it is great to see their achievements recognised in such a high-profile awards scheme. My congratulations especially go to Geoff, who is one of the true backbones of this company. He achieves more in a day than many of us do in a week.”
