Mott MacDonald triumphs at Construction News Quality awards

Mott MacDonald has won two accolades at this year’s Construction News Quality (CNQ) awards. The global management, engineering and development consultancy scooped the coveted Health and Safety Award, while the company’s work on the King’s Lynn biosolids plant with Anglian Water won the Project £10m-50m category.

The Quality Awards are organised by leading industry magazine Construction News publications to celebrate quality and encourage innovation, management best practice and teamwork.

Mott MacDonald joined forces with Anglian Water to deliver the King’s Lynn waste treatment plant for the client’s biosolids project. This involved developing a new, more sustainable waste treatment process that has enabled the client to further reduce its carbon footprint. The two teams determined the delivery strategy, procurement route and commercial model to deliver a low-carbon solution for the project, making it a priority to identify contractors with the right balance of technical skill and teamworking style. The plan worked well, with the design and construction delivered to programme by the Gallifordtry/Imtech JV.

The teamwork employed particularly impressed the judges, who said that the collaborative approach created “the freedom to deliver a truly innovative solution utilising whole-life cost principles.” They also praised, “the forward-thinking focus of the delivery team. They created an environment that motivated its members to innovate.”

The CNQ Health and Safety Award acknowledges that health and safety is a top priority for Mott MacDonald and a key part of the company’s corporate culture. The judges highlighted the commitment of senior management and engagement with staff, as well as the consultancy’s holistic approach to risk management and the production of the innovative Circles of Protection DVD in 12 languages. The judges concluded that Mott MacDonald displayed, “An impressive approach to a challenging part of the industry.”

Chris Davis, Mott MacDonald’s group professional excellence champion said, “It’s terrific to see our achievements in health and safety and our contribution to developing sustainable solutions and innovative project management being recognised and rewarded at these high-profile, prestigious awards. Mott MacDonald’s reputation for innovation is truly world-leading and – following on from receiving our gold award from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents earlier this year – our commitment to continual advancement in the area of heath and safety is clearly attracting attention and acclaim.”
