Some 2.5 million tonnes of recycled or reclaimed aggregates were used on the project which also saw the remediation of 86,000 tonnes of chromium waste.
The judges noted that:
“The project had a primary focus on the use of materials from secondary sources. The substantial majority of this was sourced locally from other projects. Achievement of this strategy also required the stabilisation of large quantities of contaminated ground.”
