NCE100 Design Innovator Award 2018

In June 2018 Edenvale Young won the NCE100 design innovator award which is arguably one of the most prestigious awards in Civil Engineering in the UK. Edenvale Young were nominated in two categories: Design Innovator Award and the Trending 20 Award for SMEs or the "ones to watch" award.

Edenvale Young won the award for our innovative approach in hydraulic modelling, particularly the development of 2D catchment scale modelling for a range of projects including: Sri Lanka for the Climate Resilience Impact Programme for the World Bank; modelling natural flood risk management in Trawden for the Environment Agency and Cottingham and Orchard Park Flood Alleviation Scheme.

The judges commented:

“They have taken off the shelf software applied their passion and inventive skills, then given it out for industry use. With low cost they can make a huge impact and can save lives in countries where it is needed most. 30% of their income is eligible for R &! D tax credit which confirms their innovative approach.”

Institution of Civil Engineers Awards for 2016

In 2016, Edenvale Young was given two prestigious awards for work in flood alleviation, geomorphology, hydraulic modelling and detailed design. These were:

Our involvement with the Rhiwbina project dates back to 2008 when we undertook the Flooding Project Appraisal Study for Cardiff City Council. Edenvale Young worked closely with Mott MacDonald during the design phase to ensure that appropriate engineering options were brought forward to give a consistent standard of flood alleviation.

This included removal of channel constrictions, installation of river restoration measures, defence improvements and attenuation features. The Rhiwbina Flood Alleviation Scheme the judges commented on the sensitive environmental considerations associate with the use of soft engineering. Construction was completed in 2015.

For the Pont Briwet scheme Edenvale Young undertook a wide range of services associated with the replacement of a 120m timber bridge over the Dwryrd Estuary in North Wales. The scope of works included:

The delivery team for Pont Briwet included: Geynnyd County Council, Network Rail, Hochtief UK, Hewson Consulting, Beasley Sharp Railwise, the Stillwell Partnership and, not forgetting our team at Edenvale Young. Construction works were also completed in 2015.
