The MPT consortium of VolkerRail, Laing O’Rourke and Thales has been shortlisted for three British Construction Industry Awards (BCIA).
The BCIA are the most prestigious awards in the built environment sector, recognising and rewarding excellence in project delivery and delivering outcomes for society, celebrating the hard work and dedication of the whole project team - from clients, architects, designers and contractors.
MPT is shortlisted in the Environment and Sustainability Initiative of the Year, Health, Safety and Wellbeing Initiative of the Year, and the Transport Project of the Year categories, through the excellent work achieved by the consortium’s Trafford Park Line project.
The Environment and Sustainability Initiative of the Year award celebrates those who have introduced a specific, project-based initiative that is targeting a lower carbon solution. The Health, Safety and Wellbeing Initiative of the Year recognises initiatives that tackle mental health and promote a safe and healthy working environment, and the Transport Project of the Year award showcases transport projects that are enhancing capacity, providing better connectivity or helping to improve the reliability of local, regional or national transport services.
Andy Pritchard, Trafford Park Line project leader, said: “To be shortlisted for the three awards is testament to the hard work and dedication of the whole project team, which has delivered a major infrastructure project in the heart of Trafford Park, the largest industrial estate in Europe.”
The winners will be announced at an awards evening on Wednesday 28 October at Grosvenor House Hotel, London – COVID permitting.
