The VSU team picked up “Tunnelling Project of the Year (up to $500M)” at the NCE International Tunnelling and Underground Space Awards last week.
The ceremony was held at the Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane, and celebrated the most innovative and successful projects, companies and individuals from across the global tunnelling industry.
The team were shortlisted against companies such as Arup, CH2M Hill and HOCHTIEF Murphy JV and scooped the prize for their northern tunnels in recognition of the complexity and challenges that they have overcome throughout the construction process.
Craig Prangley, Project Director, said: “This is not just an achievement by the tunnels team, but the whole VSU team. It confirms that the technical challenges, energy, enthusiasm, procedures and processes that we consider as the norm and deal with on a daily basis across the VSU project are world class.”
