Newcastle wins Excellent CEEQUAL Award


Our £10M Newcastle Wastewater Treatment Works upgrade project has received a fantastic ‘excellent’ CEEQUAL award for its engineering and environmental work.

CEEQUAL– the Civil Engineering Environmental Quality Assessment and Award Scheme – honours the commitment of those in the civil engineering industry that achieve high environmental, economic and social performance and rewards project teams that go the extra mile to accomplish distinctive environmental and social performance in their work.

Visiting the Newcastle site recently to present the award, Ian Nicholson, CEEQUAL Technical Director, said: “I would like to congratulate the Newcastle WwTW project team in achieving an ‘excellent’ CEEQUAL Award. This accolade honours the commitment of NI Water, its consultants, McAdam Design and contractors Dawson-Wam Ovivo JV in completing this major project within a challenging coastal location whilst protecting and enhancing the local environment.”
