The Fulton Awards began as a tribute to the late Dr Sandy Fulton for his outstanding contribution to the understanding of concrete, its development, and improvement. Sandy Fulton was unquestionably one of the doyens of the international concrete industry with impressive achievements in research contained in 35 published papers. He left a legacy of scientific and technological advances in the construction industry.
The Fulton Awards continue as a celebration of the life and achievements of this remarkable South African.
Through the Fulton Awards, the Concrete Society recognizes and honours excellence and innovation in the design use of concrete. The Awards are made symbolically to the structure/initiative and are presented to the entire team responsible for its construction, including the owner, developer, all professionals, and the contractors.
