MGF Shortlisted for TechFest Award!

Following our entry into the ‘Best Use of Technology: Driving Efficiency in Design and Delivery Award’, MGF’s submission on MiDesign – Standard Solutions has been shortlisted amongst 6 others.

The category is searching for teams using technology on site or behind the scenes to boost the efficiency and productivity of the global civil engineering industry through better design and delivery.

Between 2011-2018 MGF’s engineering workload increased significantly due to legislation changes and customers increasingly asking for designs with quicker turnaround times.

With this knowledge and further research, MGF developed MiDesign – Standard Solutions.

This innovation has helped increase efficiency and productivity for customers to deliver their projects faster due to MGF departments providing quick solutions for repetitive, low-risk requests – issuing an average of 50 number of Standard Solutions per month this year.

With further technical advances, the lead time for designs could be dramatically reduced for larger scale design requests – ideal for project tender stage. This, paired with increasing the number of clients signing up to a Standard Solution, would see the innovation be scaled up.

The next round consists of a presentation to a live judging panel before the awards evening. We look forward to updating you!


Following a presentation delivered by our Design Manager, Lee Womersley, MGF were awarded Highly Commended in the category of ‘Best Use of Technology: Driving Efficiency in Design and Delivery Award’.

The judges commented there was a “fantastic commitment to quality and speed of delivery temporary works solutions, plus this work is embedded in your company values.”

We are immensely proud of the achievement and believe it truly reflects the quality of the Standard Solutions service that we offer.
