EFOD also picked up 'Highly Commended' in the Team Achievement Category for the Koutulai Grain Store at the 2016 ICE West Midlands Awards.
It was said that the judges couldn't separate the three entries and considered them all worthy winners of the award and therefore decided to share
the award between the entries. A joint first place! We were up against some very tough opposition with our rivals boasting the largest passivhaus
building in Europe and a regeneration of a bridge in Coventry to create a new green public realm area.
Awards were presented by Mark Downes, ICE West Midlands Chairman 2015-16, Professor Alice Roberts ( guest speaker ),
and ICE Vice President Zara Lamont at a dinner attended by over 350 professionals.
Judges commented that the project was "excellent in demonstrating what civil engineers can achieve in collaboration and partnership."
The award is a testament to our collaboration and combined effort in delivering this building from inception to completion.
Our sincere thanks to all those involved and let's keep striving for excellence and further recognition!

- Our group have been working on the provision of an 800 sack grainstore to allow them to store their cassava
following the harvest when grain prices are low, and release to the market some months later when prices double or triple.
