Tim Lucas, Partner in Price & Myers and Lecturer in Structural Design at the Bartlett School of Architecture has been awarded the 2015 IABSE Milne Medal for excellence in structural design. The Award will be presented by the IABSE British Group Chairman Ian Firth at the Institution of Structural Engineers on Thursday 19th November, prior to Tim delivering his Mile Medal Lecture Now we have to think.
The judges were impressed by the depth, quality and variety of Tim’s work. The competition was very strong, and the decision very difficult, but in the end Tim stood out as the winner this year. IABSE is delighted to be able to award him the much coveted Milne Medal, and we all look forward to what we expect to be an inspirational lecture on 19th November.
Tim Lucas is a structural engineer based in London. He enjoys collaborating with clients, architects, contractors and artists on producing simple and elegant work ranging from buildings and bridges to large and small works of art. Recent projects include the 78m long sculpture, Slipstream in Heathrow Terminal 2 with artist Richard Wilson RA and his own corten steel house near Kew Gardens with architect Stuart Piercy.
The Milne Medal is awarded to an individual engineer for excellence in structural design, both in the overall concept and in the attention to detail in their work, and is named in recognition of the late Bob Milne, who served for many years as the Honorary Secretary of the IABSE British Group.
