Sweco Scoops NCE Low Carbon Leader Award For Second Consecutive Year

1 May 2019
Sweco UK has won the ‘Low Carbon Leader’ accolade for the second consecutive year at the New Civil Engineer’s (NCE) annual industry awards.

The business was awarded for its work on implementing the PAS2080 standards on Perth & Kinross Council’s £120 million Cross Tay Link Road (CTLR) scheme, which will relieve the traffic burden on Perth’s two road bridges.

The judges also commended Sweco for its continued success on the Renfrewshire City Deal Scheme, where it is set to deliver significant reductions in carbon, together with developing new digitalisation techniques and cloud-based BIM integration to accelerate low carbon design.

The business, which climbed 40 places in last year’s NCE100 Companies listing, has also retained its sixth place in the NCE’s ranking of the top UK 100 engineering firms.

Sweco was named a finalist in three other categories on the night. The company’s work with Anglian Water in developing a new digital GEO-PLM platform was shortlisted for the Design Innovator award, with the business also a finalist in the Innovator Operator category for integrating the National Telemetry Programme for Irish utility provider, Ervia.

The consultant’s work with Rika Biofuels to develop the Fridays project - a pioneering anaerobic digestion scheme to treat poultry manure at the Knoxbridge Farm in Kent, which is the first of its kind in the UK – was a runner-up in the Impact in Energy category.

The NCE awards is the most prestigious and competitive awards programme in the sector and serves as an independent benchmark for engineering excellence, recognising the most forward-thinking and innovative firms in the industry.

Max Joy, President at Sweco UK, said: “Sustainability sits at the heart of our business and we’re proud to continue to push the boundaries of carbon reduction in the projects we deliver for our clients.

“This achievement is clear recognition from the leading authority on UK civil engineering that we’re one of the UK’s leading players, and is testament to the expertise, innovation and commitment of all of our teams.”
