6 Bevis Marks wins GE Sustainability award

Waterman are pleased to announce that 6 Bevis Marks has triumphed in the Sustainability Category at the Ground Engineering awards 2013.

The awards were presented on the 25th April at the prestigious Grosvenor House Hotel on London’s Park Lane, which had an audience of over 450 leaders in geotechnical engineering consultancy and contracting.

Waterman are providing multi-disciplinary design services to this pioneering project and have been working closely with Cementation Skanska to adopt an innovative approach to pile reuse.

6 Bevis Marks effectively retains over 50% of the original structural mass as a part of an extensive sustainability agenda that will ultimately shorten the construction programme. Rigorous testing and analysis allowed 27% of existing piles to carry more load than previously experienced, up to a 40% increase. The reuse enables a 1000t carbon saving on installation alone. Overall, the new 16 storey development is 80% more efficient than the building it replaces.

Full details of the award winners and highly commended entries in each category, as well as the judges’ comments will be published in the July issue of GE.
