WYG Engineering is celebrating success at the Yorkshire and Humber Constructing Excellence Awards.
The Civil & Structural team in Leeds picked up the ‘Legacy Award – Sustainability’ for the Lafarge Plasterboard Manufacturing and Distribution Facility at Ferrybridge Power Station.
The winning project regenerated an abandoned part of the power station for a new manufacturing facility featuring the use of synthetic gypsum made from the power station’s waste products.
Mike Kershaw, Director, WYG Engineering said: We are always pleased to be recognised for our commitment to sustainability and meeting our Clients’ needs with innovative, practical solutions. In particular our work with Clugston Construction on this project solved many affordability and programme issues for Lafarge thereby giving added value.
WYG also played a part in the success of Wates Construction winning the ‘Innovation Award’ for the former Lewis’ department store in the centre of Leeds. Work undertaken by the Civil & Structural team in Leeds included load testing of the floors in the original building and their structural analysis were amongst the innovations cited at the award.
WYG Environment Planning Transport was also involved with these projects, undertaking environmental, planning and transportation services.
For further details on either of these projects please contact Mike Kershaw, Director Buildings North, WYG Engineering Ltd.
