Broomhill Sands Scheme Nominated for Two BCI Awards

The Broomhill Sands Coastal Defense Scheme has been shortlisted in two categories of the 2016 British Construction Industry (BCI) Awards.

The BCI Awards recognize and reward excellence in project delivery and are the only construction industry awards scheme to have the backing of the Prime Minister.

Delivered by Team Van Oord on behalf of the Environment Agency, Broomhill Sands is shortlisted in two BCI Awards’ categories – Civil Engineering Project of the Year (£10 to £50m) and Best Practice in Procurement.

The £30m scheme, which took two years to complete, will provide improved protection from flooding for around 1,400 homes and 100 businesses along a 2.5km stretch of the East Sussex coastline from The Suttons to Lydd Ranges.

The scheme has increased the standard of protection to the area from 1 in 20 years to 1 in 200 years. This means that the risk of flooding in any one year has reduced from 5% to 0.5%.

Broomhill Sands was officially opened earlier this month by Emma Howard Boyd, Chair of the Environment Agency.

The BCI Awards judges will visit Broomhall Sands on 20 June, and the 2016 Awards will be presented on 12 October at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.
