Engineering Excellence Awards 2011
Up and Under Limited, together with Network Rail and BAM Nuttall are tonight finalists in the ICE, SE England, Engineering Excellence Awards 2011 for the surface retention design works at Falmer Cutting.
The project was an excellent example of combining specialists from a number of organisations to produce a project meeting the needs of the client through cooperation.
Network rail commented:
“The site had complex access and involved negotiating with a number of parties. When access was obtained the works comprised the installation of soil nails and rock netting. This was carried out without impact on the railway using a novel catch fence. The works were completed early resulting in project savings and reduced impact on the travelling public.”
Working with clients to produce great results often sounds expensive and time consuming but the comments above provide you with at least puase for thought.
Well done to Rob for carrying this project through, hopefully he will get his hand on the prize this evening.
