Fleming Award


The team which developed an innovative £6M coast protection and slope stabilisation scheme at Castlehaven on the Isle of Wight has won the prestigious Fleming Award at the final held on 7 December at the Institution of Civil Engineers in London.

The Castlehaven team comprised High-Point Rendel, Van Oord UK, TP GEO/Groupe Ress, Isle of Wight Council, Defra and WJ Groundwater.

The annual BGA Fleming Award, sponsored by Cementation Foundations Skanska, recognises excellence in geotechnical design and construction.

The winning project used electropneumatic pumps to improve drainage and reduce the impact of landslides (GE August 2004).

Other finalists were from the UK's largest soil mixed reactive barrier and the ground improvement for the M60 orbital motorway widening scheme in south Manchester. Full details of the finalists will be published in GE's February issue.
