Fantastic news as Chiswick Park Footbridge wins two awards at the ICE London regional awards, winning both the Innovation and the People’s Choice Awards.

The Innovation award was presented by Andrew Wyllie, President of the Institution of Civil Engineers at the awards dinner on Thursday 16th of May 2019. The award highlights the innovative use of a network arch, the first of its kind in the UK. The judges were impressed with the zero maintenance design of the bridge, achieved by restraining the palette to weathering steel, hard wood timber and stainless steel.

Excitingly later in the evening Chiswick Park Footbridge was also awarded the People’s Choice award, which received over 4,000 votes, reflecting how the bridge is an excellent example of public, private partnership.

Congratulations to our sister company Useful Studio and the rest of the team for delivering a double award winning project and to all the other award winners!
