MERIT 2019 Champions

 More details to follow







Phew…. after 8 rounds of intense competition the results are finally in. With a storming run “The Avengers” have led from the front all the way to the finish line amassing an impressive 4450 points on the way. Only once before in the history of the competition has one team led all the way – Arup back in 2012.

This competition has been notable for a different reason – the teams from Atkins India - who have secured 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th places! No prizes for guessing who has won the sponsors prize this year. The internal competition between these teams has been fantastic with different teams popping to the front, only to be overhauled by another team later. However once Panchatantra found the front they have managed to keep the following pack behind them.

The league table for the Sponsor Award competition looks like this: 

1 Atkins, IN 4,043
2 Fluor 2,903
3 Kier 2,876
4 Atkins, UK 2,787
5 Arup 2,694
6 AECOM 2,616
7 Jacobs 2,352

Whilst we congratulate the top teams we are also aware of the long hours and effort that has gone into the performance of teams right across the board. Sometimes getting ahead of  just one other team, with whom you have battled all the way, is a satisfying victory – for all the teams that competed, we salute you!

We hope you have enjoyed the experience of MERIT and follow the final that will be held at Loughborough on the 30th and 31st May. Next year – it could be you!

Another astounding round from front-runners Avengers has seen them not only stay at the front of the pack but to do it with a round- topping 12% increase in performance. Only Code Alpha in 3rd place could match this level of increase, but that was not enough to overtake internal company rivals Padratantra who still lead them by 102 points.

The other top places are as they were with all teams posting good percentage improvements. This is true for the top 24 teams - but below this zero or negative performance improvements are the order of the day. Nevertheless there is still intense rivalry between different teams ( particularly within the same organisations) and bragging rights are still being fought over.

With one round to go the finish line is in sight. Can you make one last Herculean effort to thrust your team into the higher reaches of the table? At this point even improving by 1 place feels like a victory. Keep your nerve, stretch your abilities and go for it - you know you want it!

Name of the week goes to the Wombles - who improved an impressive 8%
