In addition to winning the CN specialists awards project of the year in April, Celtic have gone on to win the Sustainability award at the prestigious National Ground Engineering Awards as well as the best practice trophy at the north west Chartered Institute of Highways and Transportation Awards.
The Mersey Gateway project was also highly commended in the technical excellence category at the Ground Engineering Awards and in the sustainability category at the North West CIHT awards. In addition to the project specific awards, Celtic was also a finalist in the esteemed GE Contractor of the Year award – a fantastic achievement for a company of this size.
The Mersey Gateway site forms a key component of the new £600 million crossing of the River Mersey between Widnes and Runcorn, one of the UK government’s Top 40 priority projects in its National Infrastructure Plan.
The remediation project focused on the 5.6 hectare Catalyst Trade Park, formerly an ICI Site. The ground beneath the site was contaminated with a ‘cocktail’ of chlorinated solvents including free phase Dense Non Aqueous Phase Liquid (DNAPL). The remediation works were designed to relieve constraints of the construction works, maintain the construction programme and control the remediation cost to the Council.
