A project from civil engineering and construction specialist GRAHAM that connects London’s East Bank to its International Quarter is in the running for several prestigious ICE London Awards, with voting now open.
The contractor has been shortlisted and is eligible for its project ‘Carpenters Land Bridge’, a vital pedestrian and cycle bridge that will link the £1.1 billion East Bank culture and education district on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park to International Quarter London.
The project saw GRAHAM’s civil engineering teams design and install a 66m long steel bridge, formed of a portal frame and bearings, a concrete cill beam and bearings within an existing retaining wall structure, that crosses both Network Rail and Docklands Light Railways lines.
Carpenters Land Bridge has been shortlisted in the following categories:
· Greatest Contribution to London
· Best Infrastructure Project
· Innovation Award
· Award for Community Benefit
· Bazalgette Award for Sustainability and Resilience
· Digital Engineering Award
· People Choice Award
The ICE London awards celebrate outstanding civil engineering achievement, innovation and ingenuity.
Carpenters Land Bridge was designed using Business Information Modelling software, consisting of both object-oriented 3D geometrical and non-graphical data, which was updated throughout the course of the project. You can watch a video of the project here:
Voting for the awards is open at www.ice.org.uk/londonawards from Friday 24 April at 10:00, closing on Monday 18 May at 17:00.
