Announced in front of 160 industry professionals, the ICE South East England Engineering Excellence Awards recognized five outstanding projects and two extraordinary individuals that have shown how engineers in the South East are transforming lives.

The event which took place at the Grand Brighton Hotel was hosted by Brittany Harris, co-founder of Qualis Flow.

Among the award winners was London Gateway Port Ltd. that received the award for ‘Sustainability and Resilience’ and the ‘Brassey Award (Kent and East Sussex) for Engineering Excellence’ for the Salt Fleet Flats – a new intertidal mudflat habitat in North Kent.

The Salts Fleets Flats was created on grazing land by reducing the ground level, using the material arising to create a new 2.4km-long flood defense embankment and breaching the existing flood defense to allow the site to be flooded. The 700m-long breach of the flood wall was the largest ever in the UK.
