A big congratulations to AG Wilson Civil Engineering for winning Construction Project of the Year at the Plant and Civil Engineering awards 2017!
Sleator Plant’s General Manager Jonathan Campbell and Mecalac’s Global Marketing Manager Allison Tucker were delighted to sponsor and present the award.
Both Jonathan and Allison took to the stage at the Gala evening at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Belfast to present the award. AG Wilson Civil Engineering won the Construction Project of the Year 2017 award for their work on a challenging Storm Sewer Project in Belfast. The work was needed because the existing combined sewerage system in the area did not have the capacity to take the increase in flow from the new Olympia Leisure Centre and Windsor Park major developments.
The overall project included the laying of over 600m of storm sewer, with construction techniques deployed including both open cut and trenchless works at depths up to 6m.
The project also gave NI Water the opportunity to update the 1930s combined drainage system in the area by the removal of significant volumes of storm water from the existing sewer. This will reduce the risk of out-of-sewer flooding which can result in overflows to local watercourses and environmental pollution.
Well done to all nominees and winners for the multiple awards throughout the night!
