Celtic-EnGlobe along with Wales & West Utilities are finalists in the category of Geoenvironmental Project of the Year for this year’s Ground Engineering awards for the Former Briton Ferry Gasworks project.
The site presented a clear technical challenge – 0.4 hectares of contaminated former gasworks land, including two below-ground gasholder bases, a large slow-worm population and a dense area of Japanese Knotweed, and accessible only via two narrow lanes. The objective was to remediate the site to a suitable standard whilst not adversely impacting surrounding residential properties located on all sides. It was essential our remediation works sensitively considered how to proceed, reducing the disruption the community had already endured throughout previous works, whilst maintaining exceptional levels of site safety protecting pupils of the adjacent Llansawel Primary School.
Engaging the community in respect of the work remained a priority throughout the project and resulted in the project winning the Brownfield Briefing award for best public participation in 2015.
The Ground engineering awards will take place on 30 June 2016 Hilton Park Lane, London for a full list of finalists you can visit the Ground Engineering Website here…..
