Cutts, who works as principal civils project manager for Ward Williams Associates in Truro, was presented his fellowship certificate by ICE president, Professor Lord Robert Mair, at a special ceremony held at ICE’s headquarters in Westminster.

“I always wanted to work in construction,” said Cutts. “My advice to anyone considering a career in engineering would be that there is something for everyone, no matter your strengths and weaknesses.”
