A total of four entries from VolkerWessels UK group businesses have been shortlisted across three categories, positioning our businesses alongside some the finest firms in the country.

Sustainability Award

VolkerFitzpatrick has been shortlisted for the Sustainability Award for their innovative approach to environmental and sustainability issues on the Daventry International Rail Freight Terminal (DIRFT) project with AECOM.

Ground Investigation Project of the Year

VBA, the joint venture between VolkerStevin, Boskalis Westmister and Atkins, has been shortlisted for the Crag End landslip project in Rothbury, Northumberland. This category rewards ground investigation schemes which excel in terms of innovation, sustainability, health and safety and value engineering.

UK Project with a Geotechnical Value of between £1M and £3M

VolkerGround Engineering has secured finalist spots for two projects in this category, which recognises ground engineering schemes which have been delivered beyond expected standards. The Arun (East Bank) tidal walls project in Littlehampton, West Sussex, and the River Don slope stability works at Arksey in Yorkshire have both been shortlisted in this category, a great achievement for VolkerGround Engineering.
