The Structural Concrete Alliance

Repair & Refurbishment Award Shortlist

The Structural Concrete Alliance

Repair & Refurbishment Award

is presented in recognition of exceptional work to the

repair or refurbishment of an existing structure. The judging panel considered each entry in terms of complexity, quality

of service and client satisfaction.

Volkerlaser Limited

WoodhouseTunnel A58(M), Leeds

–Refurbishment andStrengthening

This project was an £11 million subcontract for

Carillion and their ultimate client Leeds City Council

to strengthen the twin bore, 4 lane, 400 meter long

Woodhouse Tunnel, A58(M) in Leeds. The works were

carried out over two years of night shifts and was a

truly unique project for VolkerLaser, an established

member of the CRA/CPA and SCA, utilizing all the

specialisms covered by the Alliance associations

and pushing the available technology to the limit in

demanding circumstances.

Sika Limited

Poplar Baths,Tower Hamlets

The £36 million redevelopment of Poplar Baths – an

iconic building which was in such poor condition it was

included on English Heritage’s at Risk Register – required

an extensive programme of concrete and structural

repairs to complete its transformation from a former

public baths to a state-of-the-art leisure Centre.

CCL (GB) Limited

National Grid LNGBundWalls

Strengthening&Structural Upgrade

In December 2014 CCL was called upon to provide a

design and operational solution to replace the existing

restrainment system to the outside of the bund wall.

Based on lowering the capacity of storage during the

works, at great expense to the client, the bespoke

solution involved the design of special anchors capable

of restraining bursting forces of 223 tonnes per anchor.

CCL‘s solution included the safe detensioning of the

existing wire from around the bund wall using a post-

tensioned assisted strap restrainment system.
