A scheme which has significantly reduced flood risk to thousands of properties on the West Sussex coast has been awarded a prestigious national accolade.
The Shoreham Adur Tidal Walls scheme, which was recently completed, is being recognised through the Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) National Site Awards.
The Shoreham scheme was carried out by Mackley, working as part of Team Van Oord and on behalf of the Environment Agency, Coast to Capital Local Enterprise Partnership, Adur District Council and West Sussex County Council.
Work on site commenced in October 2016, and has significantly reduced flood risk to more than 2,300 properties in Shoreham and East Lancing – as well as protecting important local infrastructure including the road network, railway line and Shoreham Airport.
The CCS National Site Awards recognise construction sites where exceptional standards of consideration are shown towards local neighbourhoods and the general public, the workforce and the environment.
Winning a National Site Award is an exceptional achievement only given to sites that have made the greatest contribution towards improving the image of construction. Only the top scoring registered sites are potentially eligible to win a Bronze, Silver or Gold award – and Mackley will discover which award has been given to the Shoreham scheme at a ceremony in London on 4 April.
David Knapp, Mackley’s Business Development Manager, said:
“We are very proud to have delivered this project, knowing our efforts have contributed to reducing the flood risk to thousands of residents and properties in the area.
“After more than two years on site, this award is deserved recognition for the Shoreham team who have been dedicated and professional throughout the duration of the project.”
