Jackson Civil Engineering's Godmanchester project has picked up a British Construction Industry 'Outstanding Contribution Award'.
Commissioned by the Environment Agency, the Godmanchester Flood Risk management Scheme was a £9.2 million project to protect over 500 residential and commercial properties in the town from flooding. The 1.5km defences were constructed along the river bank, which flows through the centre of the town. The project was particularly challenging as the majority of the construction work was carried out in frequently used public areas and private residential gardens.
Richard Barnes, Framework Director for Jackson Civil Engineering said: "This is a fantastic result for the team. Godmanchester was a complex scheme delivered to the highest standards, demonstrating what can be archived by working as a fully integrated team, with all parties maintaining exemplar standards of health, safety and environmental management, public liaison and stakeholder care throughout the delivery of the project."
The outstanding contribution award is given to the team who, in the view of the judging panel, has gone beyond the norm to ensure that their project was delivered in an exemplary manner, has provided extraordinary satisfaction to their client, or performed in a way that sets a standard to follow in the future. The winner (is) the person or team that truly embodies the spirit and intention of the (BCI) Awards, helping the industry to improve and deliver best value and satisfaction to clients.
