Rodgers Leask scoop two awards


Bondholder Rodgers Leask has scooped two awards at the 2018 Brownfield Briefing Awards, winning in the categories: Best Brownfield Infrastructure Project and Best Science/Laboratory Advance.

The annual awards and gala dinner in London celebrate excellence in engineering and innovation in regeneration, contaminated land and sustainability in the remediation sector.

This year’s awards follow its success at last year’s ceremony where it received awards in three categories.

For the category Best Brownfield Infrastructure Project, its project at Littlecombe, Dursley (Gloucestershire) showcased how innovation and exceptional engineering design along with a flexible approach has connected the fabric of old and new infrastructure between the historic market town of Dursley and the 37Ha brownfield regeneration site of neighbouring Littlecombe.

In the category Best Science/Laboratory Advance, Rodgers Leask was recognised for its involvement in the development of magnetic molecules for the selective removal of metal contaminants from soil and groundwater. Its research with ProNu-Dec Ltd and Reading University has combined innovative thinking and laboratory techniques to create a suite of magnetic molecules to target specific contaminants.

The awards not only showcase best practice and innovative engineering solutions but also the strong links between industry and academia to bring new techniques into development and use.
