2019 marked the 40th anniversary of the Crampton Prize, a prize funded by G and T Crampton for each of the Civil Engineering Schools in Dublin (UCD, TCD and TUDublin)

2019 marked the 40th anniversary of the Crampton Prize, a prize funded by G and T Crampton for each of the Civil Engineering Schools in Dublin (UCD, TCD and TUDublin). This year, the awards ceremony was hosted in the Dining Hall in Trinity College Dublin - a very apt choice given that G and T Crampton carried out the renovation of this building following a fire in the 1980s.
