Another Recognition for Wallasea Island Wild Coast Project

BAM Nuttall has just announced that their Wallasea Island Wild Coast Project achieved success at the RICS East of England Awards 2017 held at Bury St Edmunds yesterday.

The project won the ‘Infrastructure’ category and also received recognition for ‘Regeneration’, receiving a ‘Highly Commended’ award.

Wallasea Island was among 36 regional schemes nominated for the RICS East of England Awards.

The RICS judges said: “This project aimed to help solve the problem of what to do with the material dug out of London for the Crossrail project.”

“In looking for a better option than sending to landfill sites around the country, a partnership was formed with the RSPB to take the excavated material to Wallasea Island and undertake the largest salt marsh regeneration project in Europe. Pushing back against the coastal erosion of the North Sea, the site has become a haven, and bird populations have soared.”

The Wallasea Island Wild Coast Project is automatically entered to compete against other regional winners in the ‘Infrastructure’ category for the national RICS Awards Grand Final in London on 2nd November 2017.
