The Margaret Law Award recognizes individuals who have pioneered advancements associated with the engineering fire safety of the built environment. The award is endowed by Arup Americas and the recipient also receives a $2,000 honorarium.
Commenting on receiving this honour Colin said:
“I’m both surprised and delighted to receive this prestigious award named in honour of Margaret Law with whom I worked closely back in the 1990s in a professional industry body-focused capacity. Ultimately, that work led to the recognition of fire engineering as a profession and its recognition by The Engineering Council as such. Importantly, this development also realised the registration of fire engineers at the level of Chartered Engineer and other levels.”
