CONSULTANT GIFFORD and contractor Dean & Dyball have scooped ICE South's Prestige Award for the £1M Basingstoke footbridge.
Judges said that the bridge, which links bus and railway stations, is the 'jewel in the crown' of the newly developed town centre.
'Basingstoke and Deane borough councils are to be congratulated for having the courage to commission such a startling but aesthetically pleasing design, ' said ICE South chairman Andy Baldwin.
The Environmental Award went to contractor Mowlem for the £3M River Lavant flood alleviation scheme near Chichester. Designed by consultant Black & Veatch for the Environment Agency, the project involved channel widening and building a new tidal outfall in Pagham Harbour nature reserve.
The scheme won the award for its sensitive programming to ensure local wildlife was not disturbed during construction.
The Major Project Award went to Hampshire County Council, consultant Frankham Consultancy Group and contractor Raynesway. This was for the £3M Chandlers Ford railway station.
Contractor Osbourne and consultant Atkins won the Innovation Award for their £3.5M 270t Salisbury bridge slide over railway lines.
