ICE London reveals top projects of the year

Five projects have achieved success at the 2009 ICE London Merit Awards, held last week.

The awards celebrate outstanding civil engineering achievement, innovation and ingenuity by companies, organisations and individuals in the city.

The awards, which took place at the London Transport Museum, were presented by BBC London News reporter Alice Bhandhukravi and ICE London chairman Robert Sharpe.

The Docklands Light Railway Woolwich Arsenal Extension, entered by Morgan Est, received the Merit Award for Infrastructure.

The Merit Award for Building went to the Watermark Place, entered by Sir Robert McAlpine. Also recognised was the Kew Xstrata Aerial Walkway, entered by Jane Wernick Associates, winning the Merit Award for Best Integrated Design. Heathrow Terminal 5A, the centerpiece for the T5 development, was entered by Arup. It was the first project on the night to win the Greatest Contribution to London Award.

The Hampton Advanced Water Treatment Works Rapid Gravity Filter Remodelling, entered by Black & Veatch, received two awards. It received the Merit Award for Conservation and also the award for the Greatest Contribution to London.

The judging process for the main awards involved discussions and site visits. Criteria against which judgements were based included creativity and innovation, sustainability and environmental sensitivity and benefits to the client and wider public.
