Horsham Wastewater Treatment Works project wins national construction award

Southern Water’s multimillion pound upgrade of its Horsham Wastewater Treatment Works has been recognised at the Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) National Site Awards.

Southern Water’s multimillion pound upgrade of its Horsham Wastewater Treatment Works has been recognised at the Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) National Site Awards. 

 

The prestigious London ceremony highlights teams and building sites which stand out as making the greatest contribution towards improving the image of the construction sector.  

 

The Horsham project picked up the prize for the efforts made to go above and beyond in adding value to the local community and being respectful to the local community and environment.  

 

Garry Burgess, Construction Manager with CMDP – a joint venture between Southern Water contractors Costain and MWH Treatment – collected the Bronze Award after judge praised the team’s customer-centric approach and focus on protecting and improving their natural surroundings. 

 

Chris Hodgson, Framework Director at CMDP, said: “This award is a fantastic achievement by the team at Horsham. Achieving top scores for the last three CCS site assessments is a first for CMDP and shows an unrelenting focus by the team to deliver for our valued client Southern Water. Very well done to all involved in securing this tremendous win.”  

 

Jon Quirk, Project Manager at Southern Water, added: “I’m extremely proud to be associated with the delivery team at Horsham. The site team have and continue to demonstrate exemplary professional standards both onsite and when supporting the local community through volunteering and charity work. Recognition of this award is not to be underestimated as an amazing achievement.”  

 

The award follows the news that the site has secured a top score of 45/45 – ranked as excellent – for the third successive time, following a CCS assessment visit in April 2024. 

 

The major scheme, which began in September 2022 and is expected to be completed next spring, will further boost the quality of the final effluent returning to the River Arun – thanks to a range of new hi-tech machinery, control and monitoring systems, as well as the replacement and refurbishment of existing equipment.
