VolkerStevin has been presented with an ‘Excellent’ Whole Team Award by CEEQUAL. The award is recognition for the outstanding effort and commitment in environmental and social performances shown on the recently completed Todmorden Flood Alleviation Scheme.
VolkerStevin, working alongside the Environment Agency and CH2M HILL, received one of the highest CEEQUAL scores ever given at 92.4%. CEEQUAL’S chief executive commented that this project ‘was the pinnacle of best practice’. This three year project saw all parties work collaboratively to protect Todmorden from flash floods created by Walsden Water and the River Calder. The final phase of the project was completed earlier this year.
Launched in 2003, CEEQUAL is an evidence-based sustainability assessment which rewards project and contract teams in which clients, designers and contractors go beyond the legal, environmental and social performance in their work. It aims to deliver improved project specification, design and construction of civil engineering works.
Along with receiving an ‘Excellent’ rating from CEEQUAL this project has been awarded a number of prestigious awards including two Considerate Contractor Scheme awards, International Safety Award from the British Safety Council and the North East Regional Customer Service Award from the Environment Agency.
