Team Van Oord Wins One More Award

A scheme delivered by Team Van Oord working on behalf of the Environment Agency has been named ‘Project of the Year’ in the prestigious 2016 Constructing Excellence in London and South East Awards.

Having been named a finalist in two categories, the Broomhill Sands Coastal Defense Scheme went on to win ‘Project of the Year – Civils’ when the awards were presented in London on 30 June.

The Constructing Excellence Awards recognize outstanding built environment companies and projects that have delivered improvements in all-round performance through collaborative working and a real desire to make a difference.

The Awards are held throughout England and Wales, and as a winner Broomhill Sands is now in contention for the National Constructing Excellence Awards held annually in the autumn.

The works at Broomhill Sands extend across 2.5m of beach and include: a 1.8km length of rock revetment requiring 265,000 tonne of rock armor and a new concrete wave wall; recharging 700m of shingle beach and replacing the existing timber groynes; and widening and improving the existing access way along the top of the sea defenses, including pedestrian access steps and ramps down to the beach.

This is the third prestigious awards’ accolade bestowed on Broomhill Sands.

Earlier this year it received the Innovation Award at the 2016 Environment Agency Project Excellence Awards and last year the scheme was the recipient of the Environment Agency Exemplar Award.
