Double success for Thameslink Programme projects

Two projects that form part of the government-sponsored Thameslink Programme costing £7bn has been shortlisted for the Exceptional Achievement Awards (EEA) by CEEQUAL.

These two projects are the Bermondsey Dive Under, in the category of Ecology and Biodiversity and the reconstruction of London Bridge station, in the categories of Carbon, Heritage and Effect on Neighbours.

Both of these projects have received excellent ratings in CEEQUAL’s process. The Bermondsey Dive Under received a whole project award of 96.6% and the London Bridge station project received a whole team award of 97.3%.

The CEEQUAL Exceptional Achievement Awards showcase and reward project teams who have pioneered innovation and have clearly demonstrated the pinnacle best practice in a specific area on the project. The awards are to celebrate exceptional achievement within a specific topic so the project’s overall CEEQUAL assessment score is not taken into consideration due to this.

CEEQUAL is the evidence-based sustainability assessment, rating, and awards scheme for civil engineering, infrastructure, landscaping and the public realm project. The scheme in fact operates alongside BREEAM – bringing together the world’s leading sustainability assessment methods for buildings, master planning, and infrastructure.

What did the officials say?

Duncan Wilkes, Network Rail Project Director, Infrastructure Projects said:

“To have two projects shortlisted for these prestigious awards pays tribute to the skill, expertise and dedication of the people who delivered these amazing projects. Both the Dive Under and the new London Bridge station play important roles within the wider Thameslink Programme which has transformed north-south travel through London, dramatically improving millions of passenger journeys each year.”
