In addition, Tom Wilcock, a senior engineer based in Arup's New York office, beat over 60 applicants to win Young Consultant of the Year.

“Tom Wilcock embodies a lot of the change taking place across our sector at present. He sees engineering as an opportunity to make a difference to people’s lives while reflecting the growing diversity of skills involved in the sector, demonstrating strong economic insight and the ability to manage projects and people alike. All of the shortlisted nominees for this award are remarkable young engineers, and Tom should inspire many others to join a wonderful profession.”
