Celtic Technologies have won the Project of the Year Award (subcontract between £500k & £2m) at the prestigious Construction News Specialist Awards.
The project entered for the award was the Mersey Gateway remediation works, which received a Highly Commended at the Brownfield Briefing awards last year and is also being considered for an award at the upcoming GE awards.
The Mersey Gateway site forms a key component of the new £600 million crossing of the River Mersey between Widnes and Runcorn, one of the UK government’s Top 40 priority projects in its National Infrastructure Plan.
The remediation project focused on the 5.6 hectare Catalyst Trade Park, formerly an ICI Site. The ground beneath the site was contaminated with a ‘cocktail’ of chlorinated solvents including free phase Dense Non Aqueous Phase Liquid (DNAPL). The remediation works were designed to relieve constraints of the construction works, maintain the construction programme and control the remediation cost to the Council.
