Student Design Competition – And the winner is…

As part of our Future Forty year, Hilson Moran hosted a design competition for students in the Built Environment Engineering sector, asking them to answer the question: ‘How will the design and construction of the built environment change in the next forty years?’

The final competition stage saw shortlisted finalists from Universities across the UK present their ideas to a panel of judges for a chance to win £1000 and a paid internship in one of Hilson Moran’s UK offices up to 6 months.

The innovative shortlisted ideas ranged from eco-friendly and self-sufficient ‘buildings that give back’ to using drones to survey Network Rails transportation stock.

The winning entry from Rosario Argomaniz stood out from the five finalists because of her considerations outside of the sector including how sustainability and social media could be connected. The judges felt that her presentation ‘answered the question in the most direct way possible’ was ‘very tech led’ and ‘well rounded with good graphics’.

Rosario will be joining our London team this September to begin her 6-month placement working alongside our Research and Development team who look forward to welcoming her on board.


The finalists:

First Place – Rosario Argomaniz

Second Place – Kristen Tapping

Third Place – Khadijah Mohammad

Condolences – George Harvey and Nicholas Hardy

The runners up all received £500 with third place receiving £250.
