HKA is proud to contribute to Shaping the World, the ICE Bicentenary Commemorative Album

To celebrate 200 years of engineering excellence, the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) has created the commemorative album, Shaping the World, which will be launched at the historical library of the ICE’s headquarters in the City of Westminster, London, on 21 September.

HKA is proud to be an editorial contributor to the publication which showcases 200 structures and engineering projects from around the world that have had the greatest impact on people’s lives, and celebrates the individuals and organisations that deliver the vital infrastructure we all rely on.

A prestigious book of the highest quality in research, writing and design, Shaping the World explores not only key stories of inspired engineering, but also sheds a light on the major industries and commercial sectors that surround the discipline.

As well as boasting striking images that convey the magnitude and beauty of the featured engineering projects, the publication serves as a carefully curated guide to architects, consultants, infrastructure companies, environmental firms, industry-related educational institutions and other organisations whose pre-eminent status in their respective fields warrants their inclusion in this book.

Speaking ahead of the launch, Richard Freed, the CEO and owner of St James’s House, said: “The commemorative ICE album is yet another prestigious book in our long list of publications to mark landmark events such as the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. We are extremely proud of this book and honoured to be working alongside such exceptional companies and organisations on this project.

“We feel very privileged to be invited to participate and contribute to this high status, historical publication,” said Mark Lench, Partner, and Head of Marketing for HKA’s global business. “We bring a proud heritage of excellence to the engineering and construction industry based on origins established more than 40 years ago by true entrepreneurs and pioneers.”

Some 500 dignitaries from around the world as well as television and print media representatives are expected to attend the presentation of Shaping the World.
