Pudding Mill Lane Pumping station won a major sustainability award at this weeks CEEQUAL Outstanding Achievement Awards, at the Institution of Civil Engineers in Westminster.
The Olympic Park Primary Foul Sewer and Pumping Station was earlier this year rated ’excellent’ under the CEEQUAL sustainability assessment method.
“CEEQUAL is the assessment scheme for civil engineering and the public realm. It assesses how well project and contract teams have dealt with environmental and social issues in their work.”
This prestigious accolade was one of only eight Outstanding Achievement Awards given out this year. Professor Paul Jowitt, chairman of the judging panel and former President of the ICE, said:
“It was clear from the nominations we considered that some genuinely good work is being done but we also felt strongly that the Awards should be about Outstanding Achievement, not what might be called ‘best in show’. We were therefore looking for not just very good practice but for performance that was genuinely exceptional – what CEEQUAL often describes as ‘pinnacle best practice’.

Polyark II : The Railway Project came to a triumphant end recently, as students from 8 UK universities descended on Westminster to take part in the ’Supermegacrit’!
Westminster University's impressive P3 space was the scene for the 'Supermegacrit'
The afternoon/evening event involved student presentations interwoven with talks by renowned architects, and was the culmination of a year long collaborative project between these geographically distant but like-minded architecture schools. The project even involved group work and reviews on train carriages as they sped their way across the UK rail network! This reflected the pioneering theories of architecture legend Cedric Price and his original Polyark.

Polyark II was the brainchild of John Lyall, who wanted to create a kind of living architectural memorial for his old friend and mentor Cedric.
Polyark II will continue next year, so watch this space! And if your university would like to get involved please do get in touch with us!
