Victoria Station Upgrade wins at ICE London Awards

The Victoria Station Upgrade (VSU) project has won the Complex Infrastructure award at this years ICE London Civil Engineering awards.

Working alongside BAM Nuttall and Taylor Woodrow, Tony Gee produced designs for the PAL#6 underpass between the District and Circle Line as part of the major upgrade at Victoria Underground station.

Our innovative solution allowed contractors to complete the task within six days compared to the original design which required three months of construction. More details about the scheme can be found here.

The winners were announced in May, with the awards being presented by ICE President Sir John Armitt and BBC Presenter Alice Bhandhukravi.

The team’s collaborative effort and the innovative approaches implemented particularly impressed the judging panel, to which they state that VSU is ‘an exemplar of an extraordinarily complex scheme, extremely well-executed with commitment to high standards of technical excellence, collaboration, delivery and health and safety.’

More information on VSU can be found on our project page.
