Aveng Grinaker-LTA Earthworks Engineering

Another winner for Berg!! At a gala dinner at the Champagne Sports Resort on Saturday, we felt very privileged to be granted the 2009 Fulton Award for Civil Engineering Project in a very strong field of 27 excellent projects (some of which fell into other categories eg Buildings, Architecture, Unique Design, Construction Techniques, and Concrete Repairs). It was truly a showcase of concrete excellence in SA.
