North Tyneside project recognised at prestigious civil engineering awards




North Tyneside project recognised at prestigious civil engineering awards

A North Tyneside coastal regeneration project has won a prestigious civil engineering award.

 

The Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) has announced that Whitley Bay Central Promenade Coastal Protection Works has taken home the Medium Project Award for projects with a value between £1 million and £5 million in its 2019 Robert Stephenson Awards.

 

Whitley Bay Central Promenade Coastal Protection Works was designed to instigate a major regeneration of the frontage and improve the protection provided to offer robust defences against current and future coastal conditions, whilst returning the promenade back to the asset that it was for the local residents.

 

Monkton Flood Alleviation Scheme in South Tyneside was also recognised as Highly Commended in the Medium Projects category.

 

The awards are held annually to showcase the outstanding work done during the past year by civil engineers in the North East.

 

In 2018, the Medium Projects Award was won by the Castle Eden Dene Scheme, delivered by Mott MacDonald Bentley for Northumbrian Water.

 

This year’s winners were revealed by Andrew Wyllie CBE, President of the ICE at the annual black-tie dinner at Gosforth Park Hotel on 2 May, sponsored by CDM Recruitment Ltd.

 

On Whitley Bay Central Promenade Coastal Protection Works, Kyle Sutcliffe, the lead judge of the awards, said: “This complex scheme, carried out under the physical constraints of a tidal, marine environment, coupled with existing key infrastructure, required excellent planning and innovative construction solutions to overcome the site conditions and constraints, and successfully win back public support for the project following intense opposition to a previous iteration of the scheme. 

 

“Demonstrating the benefits of collaboration between two Local Authorities, as well as other key stakeholders, consideration of reduced whole life costs, and sensitivity to the local heritage of the scheme while bringing replacement features up to date with modern standards through engagement with the public, this challenging scheme was delivered safely, efficiently and on programme.”
