Allerton Waste Recovery Shortlisted for ICE Regional Awards

Congratulations to our Allerton Waste Recovery Park team for being shortlisted for the ICE Yorkshire and Humber Annual Awards 2018. The project is a joint venture between VINCI Environment and Taylor Woodrow. The team were contracted by Amey to support the design and build a state of the art integrated waste management facility at Allerton, North Yorkshire. Amey will operate the new facility for clients North Yorkshire County Council and City of York Council.

Allerton is one of eight projects in their category (projects over 5m) which puts them in the running for the Sir John Fowler Award. The awards are held every year to showcase the outstanding work done by civil engineers in the region over the past two years. This year is an excellent year to be shortlisted, as it marks the ICEs special 200th Anniversary year.

Penny Marshall, the ICEs regional director for Yorkshire and Humber, said: The standard of entries we see every year is exceptionally high, and this year is no different. As well as engineering excellence, the shortlisted projects also have to demonstrate to the judging panel that they have benefitted the communities where they are situated, and the judges have a difficult task ahead of them

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

The team will find out whether they have won the award on the 2nd March 2018 where Lord Robert Mair, ICEs president, will be presenting the awards at the ICEs annual black tie gala dinner in Harrogate. Good luck Allerton team!
