BMT, a leading international multi-disciplinary engineering and ship design consultancy is pleased to announce that Lisa Hammock, Environmental Protection and Sustainability Managing Consultant, has been awarded the David Goodrich Prize by the Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA). The prize, awarded annually and named after David Goodrich, a former president of RINA and one of the founders of BMT, is given for the best paper presented at the annual RINA Warships conference.

Siobhan Thompson, Head of Capability and Planning, BMT, said,

“It is fantastic to see how the team has continued to create positive discussion and impact within the naval design community over the years, from the early work of David Goodrich himself, through to Lisa’s highly regarded thought leadership today.”

The award was granted for Lisa’s paper on ‘Unlocking the Potential of Sustainable Submarine Design’ at RINA Warship 2021. Lisa leads the Environmental Protection and Sustainability team within the Asset Performance Services unit of BMT. She has over 20 years of experience within the marine industry, having worked in both the military and cruise sectors. She has worked as an engineer on board ships, and shoreside as an independent consultant and now specialises in assisting clients with sustainability and environmental management solutions.

Lisa said,

“Being awarded the David Goodrich Prize at RINA Warship Conference is a true honour. Raising awareness of environmental protection and sustainability in Defence is very important to me and it is great to have this paper recognised. The BMT Submarine Design Team were absolutely instrumental in the shaping of this paper, and it is all the more fitting to receive a prize created in memory of one of BMT’s founders.”
