The EBS Design Team entered a London-wide competition based upon the idea of designing innovative underground space. The Institute of Civil Engineers, (ICE) developed the competition through the ‘Future Engineers Scheme’ which aims to reach out to students across London to develop their awareness and understanding of engineering careers. The Design Team comprising four East Barnet students, Elena, Eleanor, Lucy and Tom, devised THE LIFE LINE, a system of underground tunnels across London providing a high-speed emergency shuttle service for the NHS. Their bold design won them the Innovation Award, their ideas being commended for their originality and clear presentation. The awards ceremony was held at the ICE and the prize awarded to the Team by the current ICE president Tom Broyd.
