Lostock and Keswick awards are ICEing on the cake

The success of two recent KMI projects has been recognised at the Institution of Civil Engineers North West award ceremony at Chester Race Course on 7 February.

The Lostock WTW project won the ICE North West Civil Engineering Large Project of the Year 2014 award (pictured), which recognises excellence in civil engineering schemes over the value of £0.5million. This was a major extension to Lostock Water Treatment Works by United Utilities to increase output in support of the Haweswater Aqueduct outage by the addition of six 14m long x 4.5m wide by 6.5m high prefabricated filter units. Not only were these the largest units that could be transported to site by road but they maximised use of the available area. Read more >> about Lostock and Keswick awards are ICEing on the cake

Hats on for Breast Cancer Care

Thanks to everybody at KMI who raised the fantastic amount of over £800 for Wear it Pink for Breast Cancer on Friday 25 October. Site teams got involved and donated £5 each for the guilty pleasure of wearing a pink hard hat for the day.

Brunswick House staff rose to the challenge of wearing pink for a donation and and parted with their cash for the big booby cake raffles. Thanks to everybody who got involved to help this very worthy cause. Read more >> about Hats on for Breast Cancer Care

Barrow Community Groups Benefit from Safe Site Working

KMI has worked more than 100,000 hours on the Barrow WwTW project without anyone being hurt - a feat which has earned them a £1,750 cash payout from the project coffers to share with as many community groups as they like.

The site staff were consulted and so far five charities have been chosen to benefit from £250 donations. Last month the Little Stars pre-school nursery and Barrow Celtic Juniors received awards; this month the teamhas have presented another three cheques to the Legacy Cumbria Friendship Group, Hindpool Tigers ARLFC and Holker Old Boys Under-7s football team, all based in Barrow-in-Furness.

The Legacy Cumbria Friendship Group, run by Joanne Bennett, is part of The Legacy Rainbow House which provides much needed support to children with brain injuries, multiple disabilities and complex health needs, as well as their families.

Work Experience Sparks Civil Engineering Advocate

Connor Boothroyd recently came to KMI for a week’s work experience from Caldy Grammar School.  Here is his interesting take on life at KMI and beyond.

I am currently 16 and in the process of completing my A-levels at school. After this I am looking at going to study Civil Engineering at university and then hoping to go into a career in this industry.

I have always been interested and excited about a career in engineering as a whole. However as I come closer to the decision of choosing the university and the course I would like to do I have started to look at all the different options in engineering. As I have been doing this, Civil Engineering is one that has really caught my eye. Read more >> about Work Experience Sparks Civil Engineering Advocate
