Two Hartlepool engineering projects shortlisted for prestigious regional awards

Two Hartlepool engineering projects shortlisted for prestigious regional awards

Two projects in Hartlepool have been shortlisted for prestigious civil engineering awards with the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) North East.

ICE North East has announced that Stranton Cemetery drainage and Hartlepool Headland Coastal Defences have both been shortlisted for recognition in its 2019 Robert Stephenson Awards.

Stranton Cemetery Drainage is one of five projects from across the region to be shortlisted for the Small Projects Award, and Hartlepool Headland Coastal Defences is in the running for the Large Projects Award.

The awards are held annually to showcase the outstanding work done during the past year by civil engineers in the North East. They are divided into three categories; projects with a cost in excess of £5m will compete for the Large Projects Award, projects valued between £1million and £5million compete for the Medium Projects Award, and those under £5m can apply for the Small Projects Award.

In 2018, the Cobalt Cycle Scheme, delivered by Capita for North Tyneside Council, was the Small Project category winner, and The Blyth Offshore Demonstrator Windfarm Project, delivered by BAM Nuttall for EDF Energy Renewables was the winner of the Large Project category.

This year’s winners will be revealed at ICE’s annual black-tie dinner at Gosforth Park Hotel on 2 May, sponsored by CDM Recruitment Ltd.

Penny Marshall, the ICE’s regional director for the North East said: “The standards of entries we have seen this year is exceptionally high and the judges now have a very difficult task ahead of them.

“There are thousands of civil engineers in the North East that work tirelessly to design, improve and maintain the infrastructure that we rely on, and these awards are a great opportunity to highlight the positive impact their work has on our lives.”

"The standards of entries we have seen this year is exceptionally high and the judges now have a very difficult task ahead of them."
