Victoria Station Upgrade Team Win ICE London Award

The Victoria Station Upgrade team has recently been announced as the winner of the Complex Infrastructure Award at the 2016 ICE London Civil Engineering Awards.

Comments from the ICE included: The judges were impressed by this project as an exemplar of an extraordinarily complex scheme, extremely well-executed with commitment to high standards of technical excellence, collaboration, delivery and health and safety.

The award was presented for the teams intelligent top-down approach to constructing an underpass that runs beneath the District and Circle lines, and reduced a programme of seventeen weekend possessions to one six-day Christmas blockade.

The innovative solution was developed through close collaboration between the project partners, and involved the integration of temporary and permanent works. This enabled the safe and efficient construction of this complex element of the project with nominal impact on the operational railway and London's travelling public.
