Osborne and Connect Plus Win Awards

Atkins recently hosted their annual Bridge Engineering Awards and two of the M25 schemes being co-delivered by Osborne, left with the plaudits.

Work on the piers of the M4 Elevated Section won the BIM (Building Information Modelling) award, with the judges praising the way in which the work was carried out while minimising distribution to members of the public.

The Special Award for Best Collaborative Approach to Safe Design was won by the works on the M4 Boston Manor Viaduct. With Osborne replacing the bearings within the structure, Osborne, Connect Plus, Connect Plus Services and Ekspan were complimented for the collaborative working and detailed planning that was prevalent throughout the project.

Jamie Harrison, Osborne Customer Programme Manager said: “To walk away with two awards is a testament to our collaborative approach to working with our customers, designers and suppliers. This positive approach to collaboration continues to pay dividends.”

The awards were picked up by Chris Brock on behalf of the Atkins team and by Tony Nicholls, Professional Head of Structures for Connect Plus Services, who collected the award on behalf of the wider team.
