Torcross Scheme Nominated for ICE People’s Choice Award 2018

Torcross sea defense repair is one of 10 projects worldwide nominated for the Institution of Civil Engineers People’s Choice Award 2018.

The Environment Agency team based in Devon worked with contractors Bam Nuttall Mott Macdonald Joint Venture (BMM JV) to complete the £2.4m project within 14 months of problems being identified. The work was funded by Defra flood defense grant in aid.

We would love Torcross to win this very prestigious industry award, but the competition is tough and we need votes to help us get to the top,” said Environment Agency Project Manager Becky Richards. “Working with the tides meant long, noisy shifts. We couldn’t have completed the project so quickly without the support of people in Torcross.”

The award recognizes top civil engineering projects and the winner is chosen by public vote. Voting closes on 28 September 2018.

The winner of this year’s People’s Choice Award will be announced on 6 November 2018.
