The £18 million project – which is a cornerstone of Cadent’s £1 billion programme of essential gas mains replacement work in the capital – involves three iconic London locations – the Royal Hospital Chelsea, Battersea Park and the River Thames.
Work on the 330m tunnel was completed in December 2017 and work is well underway to complete installation of the pipeline which will transport gas under the River Thames.
Strategic partner tRIIO, contractors Skanska and Barhale and designers Mott Macdonald, are all involved with the project.
The project is scheduled to be fully complete and operational in 2019.
Cadent project manager Andrew Hejdner said: “It’s an absolute honour for the project to be nominated for not just one but two categories in this year’s ICE London Awards.
“We’ve got a terrific team on the job and this double nomination is a real testament to their efforts.”
The 2018 Awards Ceremony will take place at ICE Headquarters, One Great George Street, London on Thursday 24 May 2018.
