Schemes win big
at the EMMAs

The awards, known as the EMMAs, seek to recognise exceptional projects, teamwork and individual excellence in the field of civil engineering.
A scheme to reinstate riverside flood defences in the Derbyshire town of Matlock after a channel wall collapsed was the company’s big winner of the night, picking up Merit Awards in both the Large Project and Team Achievement categories. The judges also awarded the project a Merit award for Sustainability.
The team who oversaw construction of the country’s largest fish pass on the River Trent at Colwick Country Park in Nottingham also picked up several awards and was Highly Commended in both the Medium-sized Project and Sustainability categories.
