Award reflects project’s excellent environmental approach to biodiversity and sustainability
A new 74 metre wharf at British Antarctic Survey’s (BAS) Rothera Research Station has achieved the first CEEQUAL award in Antarctica, gaining the highest rating available of ‘Excellent’. The wharf was completed in April 2020 to berth the new polar vessel for Great Britain, the RRS Sir David Attenborough.
As a world leader in climate, biodiversity and ocean research in the Polar regions, BAS is keenly aware of its role in protecting our natural world. The new wharf for BAS was completed by a unique industry partnership comprising BAS, Ramboll, BAM and Sweco. The team undertook a sustainability assessment using CEEQUAL Version 5, an international sustainability rating system operated by BRE.
Engineering, environment, design and regulatory consultancy Sweco UK has completed the integration of MLM Group into the business to expand the services and expertise it provides to the UK and Ireland market.
Sweco acquired the firm - one of the UK’s largest, privately-owned engineering, environmental and building control consultancies - in 2019. The integration now brings MLM Group under the Sweco brand.
Construction expert BAM Nuttall, with design consultants Sweco, have won a tender for a new 10-year partnership to take forward an ambitious programme to modernise the British Antarctic Survey (BAS) research stations.
Commissioned by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), this new partnership provides the framework to deliver a wide range of sustainable construction projects. Over the next decade, projects could include new scientific support buildings, laboratories, accommodation, upgraded recycling and waste management facilities, and runway enhancements. The partnership will also explore renewable energy options and decarbonisation.
