ICE news

The refurbishment of Osberton Top Bridge on the Chesterfield Canal (BELOW) became one of the first projects to be recognised for achieving the highest environmental standards, earning a 'very good' rating at the launch of the Civil Engineering Environmental Quality Assessment and Award Scheme (CEEQUAL) last month. The UK government-backed scheme, developed by the ICE, commends clients, designers and contractors which go beyond the legal and environmental norm.

CEEQUAL scores projects on issues such as land use, ecology and biodiversity, impact on water resources, archaeology and cultural heritage, energy, material use, transport, waste management, and nuisance to neighbours. Awards are granted on a rating system, ranging from pass to excellent. Of the eight projects assessed so far, Greyabbey & Kircubbin wastewater treatment works in Northern Ireland (RIGHT) is the only one to be rated excellent.
