Scottish Water’s £6.9m investment project at Loch Thom Reservoir in Inverclyde has scooped an award for innovation at the recent Scottish Civil Engineering Awards.
Jointly managed by ICE Scotland and CECA Scotland, the awards showcase civil engineering in Scotland at its best and highlight the real difference infrastructure makes for communities and people across Scotland.
The Innovation Award secured by the Loch Thom Project recognises ground-breaking improvements, products, materials and ways of working.
The entire scheme was modelled in 3D which allowed accurate visualisation of the project and vastly improved operations on site. Virtual walk throughs of the site were also undertaken to identify issues before construction commenced, thus improving the design and reducing the number of issues experienced during construction.
