Atkins beat 641 entries to win innovation awards

The Atkins designed Bahrain World Trade Center Wind Turbines has been selected by the NOVA Awards Jury to receive the 2009 NOVA Award in Innovation.

The award, instituted by the Construction Innovation Forum in 1989 is a distinction that illuminates the innovations that have made important contributions to the international construction industry. This year a total of 641 international entries vied for recognition, first undergoing an investigation by national engineering experts before being subjected to a panel of jurors.

The award was presented at the Awards Gala in Lake Buena Vista (Orlando), Florida on Tuesday, November 17 in conjunction with the National Conference of the Construction Users Round Table (CURT).

In acknowledgement of the award, Atkins Design Director Shaun Killa thanked the jury for recognising the firm’s engineering innovation in the international construction industry.

“We are honoured that the Bahrain World Trade Center has been awarded this highly prestigious accolade for Innovation in the global construction industry. We hope this award will encourage others designers and developers to consider more innovative design solutions to reduce their building’s energy and water consumption, and ultimately reduce their carbon emissions.”
