Client: Environment Agency
Jackson Civil Engineering's Godmanchester project has picked up a British Construction Industry 'Outstanding Contribution Award'.
Jackson recently completed the Godmanchester Flood Risk management Scheme, 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.
The project received a number of awards, including a highly coveted ‘Environment Agency Exemplar Award’ for exemplary health, safety and environmental management, and also an ‘British Construction Industry Outstanding Contribution Award’.
