SHS win awards
The Tilford Bridge restoration near Farnham Surrey won an Institution of Civil Engineers Historic Bridge and Infrastructure award for main contractor Carillion Regional Civil Engineering. SHS supplied and installed the timber parapets.
This follows on the heels of a similar success for SHS and Project Managers Interroute at the ICE Kent and East Sussex Thomas Brassey Awards, where the Itford Farm Bridleway Bridge was judged to be the best in its category.
Recently completed projects include a new canal footbridge and associated ramps at Newbury, West Berkshire, and two identical timber bow arch bridleway bridges on the Ridgemont Bypass near Bedford.
