RSK has had a successful Brownfield Awards 2020, named as the winner in the Best Public Engagement and Participation; Best Re-use of Materials; and Best Infrastructure Project categories. The winners were announced last night, 19 November, at a virtual awards ceremony.
RSK offers deep cross-sector experience and a wide range of technical services, which is reflected in our successful track record of projects and excellent client relationships with a range of high-profile clients, including Shell, BP, National Grid, Taylor Wimpey and BG Group. This, in turn, has resulted in an award-winning reputation across many categories of industry awards. Through awards, we have received accolades not only for our project and service expertise, but also for our health and safety practices, business achievements and employee well-being. This acknowledges the hard work put in by our staff and helps us to demonstrate that our reputation for quality and excellence is well-deserved.
One of our proudest moments as a company was in 2016, when we were honoured with the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade, which recognised RSK’s success abroad, particularly in playing a vital role in helping to rebuild Iraq. Recently, we were also ranked the third-largest UK environmental consultancy by Environment Analyst in its 2019 Market Assessment Report and awarded a place in the 2020 Sunday Times PwC Top Track 250 list, which ranks Britain’s leading mid-market companies.
In light of the upcoming Brownfield Awards, for which RSK’s submission for the project ‘The Mersey Gateway, Halton Borough, Northwest England’, has been shortlisted for three categories, Environment Analyst Director and Brownfield Awards Judge Ian Grant spoke to RSK’s Haydn Keen, Project Director and Stephen Pettitt, RSK Technical Director and Contamination Specialist for Merseylink Civil Contractors Joint Venture (MCCJV) for the duration of the project.
UK geotechnical and geoenvironmental investigation company, Structural Soils Ltd, was a winner at last night’s virtual Ground Engineering Awards taking home three awards. The company, part of the RSK Group, was named Contractor of the Year and Ground Investigation Specialist of the Year, and also won the Ground Investigation Project of the Year Award with Highways England and AECOM.
RSK is delighted to have placed first in both the UK Geotechnical Top 100 and the Consultants Top 50 rankings of the Ground Engineering Geotechnical Services File (GSF). It is the first time that RSK has secured the top position in both categories, having risen from ninth geotechnical company by UK turnover and second consultancy by UK turnover in 2019.
