An internationally inspiring engineer whose designs combine beautiful form with function, Naeem has made major contributions to bridge design on a global scale which reflect his background in both architecture and engineering, making him the stand-out candidate for the 2022 award.
Naeem's work has included the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge, Shenzhen Bay Bridge in Hong Kong, Brunei Temburong Bridge, the multi awardwinning Hulme Arch Bridge in Manchester, and the highly acclaimed Queensferry Crossing in Scotland, which was awarded the Royal Academy of Engineering’s Major Project Award.
As well as involvement in some of the world’s largest infrastructure projects, Naeem has also engineered and managed some of the UK’s unique engineering landmarks, such as the Medway Bridge on the Channel Tunnel Rail Link. Naeem has worked on road and rail bridges, viaducts and railway stations in Hong Kong, China, Korea, Vietnam, Maldives, India, South Africa, Turkey, and USA.
A Fellow of the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers, Hong Kong Academy of Engineering Sciences) he was awarded the Prince Philip Medal, the Royal Academy of Engineering’s highest individual award for his ground-breaking work on some of the world’s most iconic bridges.
