Project of the Century Award for the Falkirk Wheel

Falkirk Wheel

One of Tony Gee’s most iconic projects, the Falkirk Wheel, has been awarded a further accolade at the International Federation of Consulting Engineers (FIDIC) Centenary Awards. The world’s first rotating boat lift in Scotland was one of a number of the schemes that received the Major Civil Engineering Projects Award of Excellence at a ceremony in Barcelona.

Tony Gee completed the structural steelwork design for the world’s first rotating boat lift, which has not only helped to restore the canal route between Glasgow and Edinburgh, but has become an international tourist destination, complete with its own visitor centre.
