CEEQUAL is an international sustainability scheme delivered by the Building Research Establishment (BRE) under the certification business BRE Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM), which evaluates, rates and recognises infrastructure projects.
The three-year project in the Highlands involved complex waste water works to future-proof prime development land, while connecting the new town of Tornagrain, the nearby Inverness Airport Business Park and Castle Stuart Golf Links.
The CEEQUAL assessment scored the project at 100 per cent in the areas of people and communities, land use and landscape, historic environment, water environment and transport, contributing significantly to the final score. The Tornagrain project was also recognised earlier this year, winning Gold and Silver at the Considerate Construction Scheme National Site Awards.
Morrison Construction Water Scotland Operation’s Director Stephen Slessor, said: ‘‘Being awarded an Excellent Construction Award from CEEQUAL is an achievement to be proud of and I would like to congratulate everyone involved.
‘‘The high score we achieved during assessment demonstrates the dedication of our highly-skilled team to deliver quality infrastructure projects, which benefit the communities we work in many years into the future.''
