Medmerry Realignment Scheme Wins Two Awards

Medmerry managed realignment in West Sussex, the UK’s largest manmade coastal habitat flood scheme, has won ‘The Prime Minister’s Better Public Building Award’ and ‘Civil Engineering Project of the Year’ in the 2014 British Construction Industry Awards.

The only UK project to win two awards, Medmerry protects 348 properties, two holiday parks, a water treatment works and a main road serving over 5,000 households in Selby.

The ‘Outstanding Contribution Award’ went to the Godmanchester flood risk management scheme in Cambridgeshire. This scheme, which cost £9.1 million and protects 556 properties, consists of 1.5km of engineered defences made from earth embankments, sheet piles and masonry clad reinforced concrete walls. It also includes two new pumping stations.

Dr Paul Leinster, Chief Executive of the Environment Agency, said: “These awards recognise the excellent work of our dedicated staff and contractors in protecting people and property through delivering innovative and effective flood risk management schemes.”

These schemes have been completed as part of the ongoing programme of investment in flood assets, which aims to reduce the risk of flooding to 165,000 properties between 2011/12 and 2014/15.
