Awards for Washes team

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News -

A team be­hind the strength­en­ing of the Whit­tle­sey Washes, which was com­pleted a year early and nearly £10 mil­lion un­der bud­get, has won two awards. En­gi­neer­ing and project man­age­ment con­sul­tancy firm Royal Haskon­ingDHV had two rea­sons to cel­e­brate at the 2016 In­sti­tute of Civil En­gi­neers East of Eng­land Merit Awards. The Wash Tide Gauge project won the Tech­ni­cal Ex­cel­lence and In­no­va­tion cat­e­gory while the Whit­tle­sey Washes project won the Team Achieve­ment Award. Pa­trick Woods and Tim Burgess were there to pick up the awards. Tim said: “For the team to be recog­nised for their work on Whit­tle­sey Washes is an hon­our and a tes­ta­ment to some great col­lab­o­ra­tive work­ing not only within the in­ter­nal Royal Haskon­ingDHV team but also be­tween all parties in­volved.” The En­vi­ron­ment Agency project for the Washes will help to re­duce the risk of flood­ing to more than 250 homes in the Fens. More than 300,000 tonnes of ma­te­rial from lo­cal quar­ries was moved and com­pacted to strengthen 17km of banks.
