Congratulations to Capita Real Estate and Infrastructure on being shortlisted for the Flood & Coast Awards - Project Excellence Awards, taking place on Wednesday 19 June at the Telford International Centre. The awards are the most prestigious in the flood risk sector, with winning projects and teams rightly recognised for their achievements within the industry and by the public at large.
Our Keadby Terminal Assisted Outfall (TAO), Isle of Axholme Strategy project has been shortlisted in the "Excellent Asset Management (Doing the routine brilliantly)" category. This category recognises excellence in routine maintenance and emergency works to existing assets whilst building local resilience to future climate impacts. Examples are embankments, pumping stations, barrages, river and channel maintenance works, coastal defences, water control structures, culverts and pipes, natural flood management, sustainable drainage system and surface water systems.
The Keadby TAO project is the first example of apportioning benefits across a wider group of assets that work together as a system to deliver flood risk benefits addressing the issue of double counting and providing a fair distribution of eligible FDGiA funding across all flood risk management assets. Asset groups have been defined and ‘Dashboards’ have been produced to communicate the plans to partners and potential funding contributors. The asset groups include future costs for maintaining flood banks, walls and main river conveyance works in the IoA network, as it is essential that all parts of the system work effectively to continue to reduce the risk of flooding across the catchment. The outcome led to the successful business case and justification for the Keadby Pumping Station replacement within the catchment to manage flood risk into the future.
Graham Sant, Managing Director – Infrastructure, comments “We are thrilled to be shortlisted for this award it really is true testimony to the hard work of the team. These projects are delivered in true collaboration with the Environment Agency and exemplify our success in delivering projects collaboratively to ISO44001”.
The Flood & Coast Awards ceremony will take place on Wednesday 19 June 2019, at the Telford International Centre. Good luck to all nominations!
