Mile End Park wins Merit Award


MILE END Park in London's East End has scooped the prestigious ICE London association Merit Award.

ICE president Sir Joe Dwyer presented the award to winning consultant Mott MacDonald at the association's annual dinner this week.

Creation of Mile End Park from derelict land in the borough of Tower Hamlets took the award thanks to the project's overall package of environmental, social, technical, and sustainable engineering solutions.

(NCE 22 March). The park is famous for its 'green bridge' over four lanes of traffic on Mile End Road.

The British Museum's Great Court, designed by consultant Buro Happold and architect Foster & Partners, was given a special commendation for its remarkable technical engineering.

As in previous years the Merit Award was staged in a part-built project, GlaxoSmithKline's shipthemed global headquarters in Brentford, West London.

The £275M office block, built on a brownfield site, has an internal street spanned by connecting bridges and includes a 16 storey tower. Construction manager Mace expects the building to be completed on schedule and on budget.

London association stalwart David Hattersley organised the event.
