MEP Awards 2015: Giovani Tauckoor - Plumbing award
Giovani Tauckoor of WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff was crowned Plumbing Engineer of the Year at the 2015 MEP Middle East Awards
Giovani Tauckoor of WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff was crowned Plumbing Engineer of the Year at the 2015 MEP Middle East Awards held on Wednesday 18 November at the Park Hyatt in Dubai.
The judges noted that this was a difficult category to judge, but said Tauckoor had something that “little bit extra”.
He was praised for his impressive range of skills and also his project portfolio experience.
Andrew Russell, associate public health engineering Middle East at WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff, collected the award on behalf of principle engineer Tauckoor.
He said: "He’s well deserving of this award. Since I’ve been out in the UAE for just over six months, I can say that in that time he has proved to be a very experienced and diligent engineer in the region. He’s been with us now for just over five years. In particular his local knowledge is well recognised in the business. If we have any dealings with the local authorities in Dubai then he’s the guy."
An independent panel of judges six judges (with MEP Middle East having the deciding vote in the case of a tie) made up of industry professionals from across the GCC and throughout the construction sector came up with the final decision in each of the 15 categories.
This year’s the event was supported by Platinum Sponsor Trimble, Gold Sponsors Famco, ALEMCO, Arcadis, SSH, and Elemecs; Silver Sponsors Betec CAD, Leminar and Rheem Manufacturing; Category Sponsors Trox, Energi People, IMI Hydronic Engineering, Faisal Jassam Trading, Beeby Anderson Recruitment (B-A-R); Entertainment Sponsor Black & White Engineering; and Social Media Sponsor Godwin Austen Johnson.
