Olympic Park scores sustainability success

The Olympic Park Enabling Works project has been presented with two CEEQUAL ‘Excellent’ Awards in recognition of its environmental performance.

The CEEQUAL assessment and awards scheme recognises the commitment of the civil-engineering industry to environmental quality.

The assessment covered both the north and south areas of the Park, with both teams achieving high scores – 94.2 per cent and 94.1 per cent, respectively. The construction packages are divided between BAM Nuttal for the south area and Morrison Construction for the north area, with Atkins responsible for the design and project management of both.

In addition to the Whole Project Awards presented to the two project teams, the two contractors received separate Construction-only CEEQUAL Awards.

Commenting on the project, Atkins’ Mike McNicholas said: “This was a vast, technically-complex project, and a fantastic showcase for civil engineering, as well as a brilliant demonstration of collaborative working. The Atkins team alone included engineers, project managers, ecologists, soil scientists and sustainability experts.”

€ᄄ€ᄄDirector of infrastructure and utilities at the Olympic Delivery Authority, Simon Wright, said: “We are pleased to pick up these awards, which are worthy recognition of a project that laid the foundations for the Olympic Park and the new homes, sporting venues, parklands and new infrastructure that will benefit generations to come.”€ᄄ€ᄄ
