Sustainability Award For Joint Venture At Crossrail

20 December 2013

A greener and cleaner approach to works has led to success at the National Joint Utilities Group (NJUG) awards.

The Costain Skanska JV (CSJV) won in the sustainability category for reducing environmental impact and maximising sustainability in London. The award was won for works on C295 Thames Water Asset Monitoring.

The CSJV has worked closely with Crossrail to embed environmental best practice on utility works. It has reduced waste, noise pollution, energy use and carbon emissions – as well as disruption to the local community – through the implementation of sustainable, innovative methods and techniques.

By putting the environment and sustainability high on the agenda, the CSJV has completed works in the most efficient and least disruptive manner.

Costain Managing Director for Infrastructure, Darren James, said:

“I am delighted that the CSJV team has been recognised for exemplary work in the busiest of environments, across many different streets of the capital. Our success embodies the ethos of our Costain Cares philosophy, which we embed in all our contracts.”

The NJUG awards were held at the Houses of Parliament on Tuesday 10 December.
