Construction Excellence Award for NI Water’s Holywood Sewerage Infrastructure Project

The project team for the Holywood Sewerage Infrastructure Improvement Project has recently been awarded the “Achieving Excellence in Partnering” award from the Construction Employers Federation (CEF). The team incorporated NI Water, Geda, White Young Green and McAdam Design.

This “Special Judge’s Award” is a bonus award, which is given to the entry which displays the best approach to partnering in the delivery of a project, demonstrating collaborative working, good relationships throughout the supply chain and demonstrating measurable targets for health and safety, design quality and sustainability.

This was a challenging project, which was aimed at reducing ongoing odour issues, delivering environmental improvements and improving water quality in Belfast Lough coastal waters in the area of Holywood and Kinnegar.

The project was completed earlier this year and involved the construction of sewers and tunnels in the vicinity of the A2 Belfast / Bangor Road and railway line, whilst diverting wastewater overflow discharges to a new waste water pumping station adjacent to Kinnegar Wastewater Treatment Works.

McAdam Design were Designers for Geda Construction on Phase 1 and Project Managers for NIW on Phase 2.
