Working on behalf of a partnership comprising Waveney District Council, Suffolk County Council, the Environment Agency and DEFRA, Mackley is nearing completion of a two-year project to improve sea defences at Lowestoft in Suffolk.
Mackley has enjoyed success in a prestigious new awards scheme which recognises best practice in promoting diversity in the civil engineering sector.
The £30m Broomhill Sands Coastal Defence Scheme, delivered by Mackley working as part of Team Van Oord, has been named a winner in the 2016 Environment Agency Project Excellence Awards.
Team Van Oord has received a second consecutive Environment Agency Exemplar Award for a scheme carried out as part of the Asset Recovery Programme South East.
