Sugden End Landfill Remediation Works has been shortlisted for recognition at ‘The Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) Yorkshire and Humber Awards 2021’, in the Smeaton Award category (projects under £5million).
The Sugden End Landfill, between Haworth and Keighley, has been transformed and is now home to an oak upland woodland, moorland area, wildflower meadows, rock pile areas and additional agricultural grazing land.
Wardell Armstrong were commissioned to act as the engineer and designer for the cap, undertaking a materials suitability assessment, preparing the Construction Quality Assurance (CQA) report and all necessary information for submission to the Environment Agency prior to works commencement.
During the works we provided the following services:
- Slope stability assessments;
- Redesign of site slopes and contours using site won materials and geomembranes;
- Soils source suitability testing and assessments;
- CQA supervisor and Environment Agency liaison for the duration of the project; and
- Preparation of the CQA validation reports following project completion.
The scheme, which we successfully delivered with City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council and Eric Wright, is up against six other projects including; College Road Roundabout, Church Street Flood Alleviation Scheme, and Lindley Wood Spillway Replacement.
