Sandsend MULE shortlisted for IStructE Yorkshire Award


We are pleased to announce that the Sandsend MULE project has been shortlisted for the ISturctE Yorkshire Awards.

The IStructE Yorkshire Awards recognise projects that have been design, constructed or built in the Yorkshire region. In the case of the MULE project all three of those options have been met.

The project involved the design of a piece of bespoke mechanical equipment which was designed for Balfour Beatty to use to manoeuvre and install the 13 tonne revetments as part of the Sandsend Coastal Defence project.

Balfour Beatty approached us with a concept that they had developed based on their close understanding of the site requirements and the specific challenges that this project entailed. The final machine brought safety and efficiency benefits to the project and enabled Balfour Beatty to maintain road access to Sandsend and minimise traffic disruption.

Further information about the MULE project can be found here.
