Capita Shortlisted at Construction News Awards

17th July 2014

Capita has been shortlisted in the Construction/Project Management Consultant and Engineering Consultant categories tonight’s 2014 Construction News Awards.

2013 was another big year for the company’s project management team. It followed up its project and cost management work on the London 2012 Olympics by delivering yet more complex and iconic schemes including the £188.8m Library of Birmingham (pictured above) and the £70m ‘Sixty’ scheme at Holborn Viaduct in central London.

In structural, civil, mechanical & electrical, process, and geo-technical engineering Capita is continuing to earn plaudits for consistently producing great work on complex projects across all sectors - from blue-chip commercial property portfolios to major schemes for local and central government.

The company is/has been working on HS2; Crossrail; the A556 Knutsford to Bowdon Bypass, a new four mile dual carriageway that will connect the M6 and M56 in south east Manchester; the centrepiece sculpture at Goodwood 2013; Diamond Light Source, the UK’s national synchrotron facility; Lord’s Cricket Ground; Lancashire Country Cricket Ground; a 6km pipeline under the Humber Estuary; as well as providing m&e services on the new £188.8m Library of Birmingham.

The 17-23 Bentinck Street project has also been nominated in the Project of the Year (between £10m-£50m) category. Designed by ESA – part of Capita – and constructed by VolkerFitzpatrick, the £11m project comprised the refurbishment of existing properties into 44,000sqft of high quality office space and three luxury apartments in the heart of London's west end.

The project, carried out on behalf of Howard de Walden Estates, involved the demolition of the existing structure whilst retaining the impressive façade at the front of the buildings. The project is rated as BREEAM excellent thanks to extensive areas of photovoltaic roof slates and 14 GSHP boreholes.
