Highland project earns Excellent Construction Award

MORRISON Construction has won an Excellent Construction Award from CEEQUAL (Civil Engineering Environmental Quality Assessment and Awards Scheme) after achieving a score of 82.5% for the Tornagrain Pump Away Scheme in the Highlands.

The three-year project involved waste water works to future-proof prime development land, while connecting the new town of Tornagrain with the nearby Inverness Airport Business Park and Castle Stuart Golf Links.

CEEQUAL is an international sustainability scheme delivered by the Building Research Establishment (BRE). The assessment scored the Tornagrain project at 100% in the areas of people and communities, land use and landscape, historic environment, water environment and transport.

The project was also recognised earlier this year, winning Gold and Silver at the Considerate Construction Scheme National Site Awards.

Morrison Construction Water Scotland operations director Stephen Slessor said, ‘‘Being awarded an Excellent Construction Award from CEEQUAL is an achievement to be proud of and I would like to congratulate everyone involved. ‘The high score we achieved during assessment demonstrates the dedication of our highly-skilled team to deliver quality infrastructure projects, which benefit the communities we work in many years into the future.”
