Bristol & Bath Science Park's civil engineers win prestigious infrastructure award
The civil engineering firm, Peter Brett Associates, have scooped a national award for their work at the Bristol & Bath Science Park. The Association for Consultancy and Engineering (ACE) Award for Infrastructure was presented in recognition of their excellent planning and engineering work at the Park.
This latest award follows the Science Park being named recently as the ‘Best Commercial Workplace’ in the region, by the British Council of Offices.
The ACE Awards recognise the very best UK-based consultancy and engineering. The ceremony was held at the Marriot Grosvenor Square Hotel in London and presented by Mary Nightingale, the ITN News anchor.
ACE chief executive, Nelson Ogunshakin, said: “This year’s awards were highly competitive with a record number of entries and projects from around the world undertaken by engineers in this country. The standard is a wonderful testament to the remarkable vision and expertise of our world-leading sector”.
Bonnie Dean, chief executive of the Bristol & Bath Science Park, said: “The competition for the ACE Awards was very high, and we are delighted that our consultants, Peter Brett Associates, were recognised for the quality of their advice and work at the Science Park. The level of the infrastructure in place means that the Park is able to offer ‘oven ready’ plots for construction of new buildings, considerably reducing the time to occupation for new occupiers”.
