Creative Republic’s latest project is an online catalogue of interesting things happening in Birmingham – and some wonderful person has been kind enough to nominate the Paper Project – more information here.

In other news, the project managed to pick up the Chairman’s Award from the Wesit Midlands Institution of Civil Engineers annual awards – well deserved by everyone who has been involved.

It was a good night all round for young engineers in the West Midlands – Engineers for Overseas Development picked up the overall project award for the Koutulai Mill project in Uganda. I’ve only been peripherally involved, so can testify as to the hard work that’s gone into fund-raising, designing and supervising the project.
