Ivor Evans was awarded the first-ever Consulting Engineers South Africa (CESA) Lifetime Industry Achievement Award posthumously at the 2018 CESA Aon Engineering Excellence awards last week.

This year, close to 50 submissions were received and, to celebrate Nelson Mandela’s centenary year, CESA expanded the categories to include the Lifetime Industry Achievement Award to recognise an individual who has contributed significantly to the development of the consulting engineering industry in South Africa during his or her lifetime.

“We included this new category in the centenary year of one of the greatest legends of all time, Nelson Mandela. Engineers create legacies . . . Each time you plan, design, build, maintain and rehabilitate, you are creating a legacy for the next generation,” CESA CEO Chris Campbell said.
