Clarkebond Project Shortlisted for Ground Engineering Award
A Clarkebond project has been shortlisted for a prestigious 2016 Ground Engineering Award in the category for UK Projects with a Geotechnical Value of between £1M and £3M.
The project nominated for the award concerns the infilling of the former Barnhill Quarry in Chipping Sodbury near Bristol, to create a level 30,000m2 development platform for the construction of housing.
In places the quarry was 35 metres deep and up to 125 metres wide. Clarkebond overcame considerable challenges to achieve settlement targets within 3 months of filling completion, which was key to the project’s viability.
"We are delighted to have been shortlisted for this award," comments John Pavey, Executive Director, Clarkebond. "It's a great way to demonstrate to our clients that we are best in class and also recognition for the expertise of our teams."
The winners will be announced on 30 June 2016 at a glamorous lunchtime ceremony at the Hilton Park Lane, London, where over 800 of the industry elite will join together for an event filled with entertainment, celebration and networking.
