The Littlehaven Promenade and Sea Wall project has been named among the nominees for this year’s UK Prime Minister’s Better Public Building Award.
Regarded as the pinnacle of The British Construction Industry (BCI) Awards, The Prime Minister’s Award recognize excellence in construction, design, and delivery of buildings and civil engineering projects.
The Littlehaven project is also in the running for the BCI Civil Engineering Project of the Year (up to £10 million), a category that recognizes outstanding achievement in the construction of buildings and infrastructure.
Driven by South Tyneside Council, the project in South Shields delivered enhanced amenities in the form of better accessibility and connectivity to the seafront, riverside and the regenerated town center.
Speaking about the nomination, Royal HaskoningDHV’s Technical Director Nick Cooper, said: “The Prime Minister’s Better Public Building Awards recognize publicly funded construction projects that are completed on time, on budget and bring real change to the community.”
