BEEAs Week Day 5: Ricardo scoops the Grand Prix

The final day of BEEAs week saw a special award for VentilatorChallengeUK and the Grand Prix awarded to Ricardo.

Ricardo was the recipient of the Grand Prix at the BEEAs, with the judges seeing this a long-established, global engineering, environmental and strategic consultancy as standing out from the crowd.

Meanwhile, the BEEAs Special Award For Design Engineering went to VentilatorChallengeUK to recognise the incredible efforts by the engineering sector to meet the need for equipment to help combat the Covid-19 pandemic. Led by High Value Manufacturing Catapult chief executive Dick Elsy, the VentilatorChallengeUK consortium – which includes some of the biggest names in UK manufacturing – achieved a scale-up that many thought impossible – producing 10 years’ worth of new ventilators in just 10 weeks.
