In a highly contested category, their revolutionary approach to a complex project undertaken on behalf of the City of London Corporation at a Central London location of high archaeological significance, ensured a resounding win for the Surrey-based firm.

Employing a combination of their own unique systems, Macleod Simmonds achieved huge cost savings for stakeholders, minimised disruption to road users and the local community as well as provided vital information to archaeologists to ensure successful completion of the project.

The judges praised the entry for “very positive outcomes achieved from this highways project that has shown excellent practice and new ways of working”.
