The Broadmoor Hospital redevelopment project has won first place for environmental engineering and sustainability in the Thames Valley branch of the Institute of Civil Engineers South East England Engineering Excellence Awards.
The award was given for the 18 month enabling works programme that prepared the grounds for construction. The programme included:
- A new energy centre and CHP (combined heat and power) boiler that will turn wood chips into fuel
- A new access road which currently diverts construction traffic away from Crowthorne town centre
- Ongoing ecology work which saw hundreds of animals relocated to safer environments in surrounding areas.
As well as the enabling works programme, which finished towards the end of last year, the main redevelopment will help the hospital to reduce its carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. The hospital will also recycle much of its demolition material and cut down on its landfill waste as it continues to think of more ways to conserve the environment.
The project will now go forward to the regional awards on 17 July.
