Gleeson contracts manager Richard Green won the ICE'S coveted Civil Engineering Manager of the Year Award and £5,000 prize money on Monday for his work on the Chingford South water treatment works. The £30.9M water treatment plant in London for Thames Water was six times larger than any project Green had previously worked on, but was completed five weeks ahead of schedule, ensuring that Thames got a vital 60M litre a day supply for the capital on time and that contractors got the maximum completion bonus. He managed the project from concept to conception in just one year, by bringing the project team and supply chain together early on to improve co-ordination and drive progress. Full report next week.
