The Costain Skanska joint venture (CSJV) environmental team working on the Crossrail Bond Street station in Central London has won one of the programme’s sustainability awards.
The ‘Environmental Engagement’ award was granted at Crossrail’s 2016 Sustainability Awards and recognises the team’s noise reduction solutions and engagement with the local community.
The award is given to contractors who promote best practice and demonstrate exceptional performance in tackling environmental issues on their projects.
According to Costain, the environmental team maintained a close collaboration and engagement with everyone on site, so the project could progress with the minimum disruption.
Melissa Wellings, CSJV’s environmental manager, said: “A great deal of dedication, time and effort has gone into managing noise and vibration at Bond St.
“This minimised the risk to both stakeholders and work programme and involved collaboration between the contractor, local authority, consultants and the site team.”
The Bond Street project — part of the £14.8bn Crossrail programme, which will be known as the Elizabeth line when services start running in December 2018 — includes the construction of two ticket halls and tunnel connections in the heart of West End.
