McLaughlin & Harvey were thrilled to be awarded a Civil Engineering Environmental Quality Assessment (CEEQUAL) ‘Excellent’ Award for our Loch Ryan Port Development Project, which was presented to our team at an event held at James Street South on Wednesday 12th June 2013.
CEEQUAL is the evidence-based sustainability assessment, rating and awards scheme for civil engineering, infrastructure, landscaping and the public realm sector, which celebrates the achievement of high environmental and social performance.
This CEEQUAL ‘Excellent’ award therefore demonstrates an industry-leading and committed approach to sustainable development and is hopefully the first of many CEEQUAL ‘Excellent’ Awards to be achieved by McLaughlin & Harvey.
At this event, two further award certificates were presented by CEEQUAL verifier Danny Glynn to our client Stenaline and to the Project Designer RPS .
The Loch Ryan Port Development included the design and construction of a new 240m long suspended concrete jetty, using a bespoke temporary works piling frame designed in-house. Other works included dredging and reclamation, large diameter tubular piling, revetment construction, bankseats, support dolphins, fendering, approach structures and installation of a new linkspan and automooring system.
On-shore works consisted of car parking, vehicle marshalling, the construction of a new terminal building and a new 250m long overhead pedestrian walkway. The existing A77 road was also realigned as part of the scheme and a new roundabout constructed to access the new port facility.
This scheme was also awarded Biodiversity Project of the year 2011.
