Green Port Hull and Immingham Renewable Fuel Terminal have both been shortlisted at the British Construction Industry Awards 2017.
Green Port Hull and Immingham Renewable Fuel Terminal have both been shortlisted in the Major Civil Engineering Project of the Year (over £50m) category at the British Construction Industry Awards, which recognises and rewards excellence in project delivery, design, construction and delivering outcomes for society.
National construction firm Graham has been recognised for its work at Green Port Hull; a joint venture with Lagan Construction, and the Immingham Renewable Fuel Terminal, for ABP.
Graham Lagan Construction JV performed the design and construction of the works at Green Port Hull for the end user Siemens’ off shore wind turbine manufacturing facilities. The scheme included infilling one third of Hull’s Alexandra Dock with 780,000 m3 of material and reclaiming 7.5ha of the river to create a new 650m quay wall, which can accommodate three offshore wind installation vessels.
Immingham Renewable Fuels Terminal was a £130 million project involving the design and construction of a facility for importing, storing and onward transfer of renewable fuels (wood pellets) at the Port of Immingham.
Judges will visit both sites and carry out rigorous interviews as part of the selection process. The results will be announced in October 2017.
