In many ways the 2012 recipient of the Gold Medal awarded by SAICE's Geotechnical Division personifies the essential geotechnical engineer. Says Gavin Wardle: "We love every moment of our work, but we don't do it on our own, we do it in collaboration with others and it is the joint effort that makes the outcome so rewarding and successful." That is why, apart from feeling "honoured that his body of work has been regarded as contributing to geotechnical engineering in South Africa", he cannot but pay tribute to colleagues past and present - several of whom are previous Gold Medal recipients - and mentors who have contributed to his development.
