Pell Frischmann is delighted to have been shortlisted as a finalist for the Impact in Airports and Ports category for the New Civil Engineer (NCE) Companies of the Year Awards 2020.
The NCE Awards recognises and celebrates the most innovative, impactful and inspirational firms operating in civil engineering. This year, they have also decided to rename the event – which was previously known as the NCE100 Awards – to the New Civil Engineer Awards, Companies of the Year 2020. This was made to better reflect the event purpose and the priorities of the industry moving forward – whilst also adding new categories such as corporate social responsibility. Pell Frischmann is proud to have been shortlisted by an organisation that seeks to recognise the need for innovation and change for the betterment of the Industry.
At Pell Frischmann, we believe that quality engineering goes beyond simply achieving codified compliance, and we passionately pursue solutions that challenge convention in order to deliver better results for end-users. Our unique way of working and collaborative nature is more important than ever to developing infrastructure to keep the economy going in the current climate.
Due to the ongoing challenges with Covid-19, the next stage will no longer be a face to face session with the NCE panel, but rather a virtual assessment stage with judges reviewing and scoring original written entries.
For the Impact in Airports and Ports category, the projects submitted were:
- London City Airport – An expansion that aims to accommodate an increase of 2 million more passengers and 30,000 more flights by 2025. Our latest services have included the design of eight parking stands to accommodate the size and load of the new Airbus A320, as well as providing our niche expertise in AGL (Aeronautical Ground Lighting) design for parking stands, taxiways and runways.
- London Luton Airport – A scheme that looks to significantly increase Luton Airport’s 18M passengers per year to 32M. Our collaborative approach carefully balances maximising economic, social and environmental benefits, whilst mitigating adverse effects on the environment.
- Bournemouth and Exeter Airports – A project that assists Regional & City Airports in relinquishing their ownership and the associated operation and maintenance responsibilities for the sewage treatment facility that services Exeter International Airport.
