PIP’s editor has judged the Galvanisers Association Awards (the GAGAs) for the last few years, and the quality of entries this year has been as high as usual.  A worthy winner was this year’s ‘Galvanising in Engineering’ recipient – Bourne Construction, which oversaw the ‘hiding’ of a huge water treatment works the size of three football pitches in the middle of the South Downs. With a grassed roof and berms all around, the works referenced the prehistoric architectures of Britain’s Long Barrows.
