Remediation award for Cuddy Group
By Lindsay Gale20 October 2011
UK contractor Cuddy Group has shared in a remediation award announced at the recent Brownfield Briefing awards held in central London on October 12. Cuddy shared the "Best use of a combination of Remediation Techniques" award with QDS Environmental and Environmental Resource Management for the work the three companies have together undertaken on a three year programme at regeneration specialist St Mowden's Baglan Bay redevelopment in Port Talbot. The +500 acre site once housed one of the largest petrochemical plants in Europe.
The project features three strict annual milestones that have to be met, and the award recognises the achievement of the first of these, during which the three companies demonstrated best practice, safety and cost-effectiveness to achieve a significant reduction in pollution on the site as well as gaining stakeholder acceptance and sustainable project outcomes.
Managing director John Cuddy said of the award: "You don't get a more prestigious award scheme than this in the land remediation industry. To receive industry recognition, in the first year we've ever entered, feels like an outstanding achievement for our remediation professionals."
"We were incredibly proud of the solutions that the consortium devised to achieve St. Modwen's first project milestone targets, but to be awarded the 'Best Use of a Combination of Remediation Techniques' accolade, shows just how impressive the consortium's performance was throughout this period."
"We decided to set up a dedicated remediation division in 2010, having previously undertaken smaller remediation projects under the Cuddy umbrella of companies. As a result, the company is now able to offer a complete, seamless regeneration package, from asbestos removal and demolition through to remediation and civil engineering and groundworks. The remediation division alone reported turnover of £6.5m for the past 12 months."
