Prestigious Accolade for Fitzgerald at Institution of Civil Engineers Awards

Fitzgerald Contractors were delighted to receive a Highly Commended accolade in the ‘Small Project Award’ category for our Snow Hill Public Realm programme at the 2022 Institution of Civil Engineers Awards ceremony last night (5th May).

Fitzgerald worked in partnership with client Birmingham City Council and designer Broadway Malyan to successfully undertake key infrastructure works involving footway and highway remodelling along Cornwall Street in the heart of Birmingham’s Colmore Business District.

As a flagship project for Birmingham’s Big City Plan, the completed scheme has significantly enhanced the public realm along Cornwall Street with high-quality benches, trees, lighting and granite paving setts. Landscape features have been incorporated to maximise visual impact and increase the absorption of CO2. Street lighting and traffic signals have also been designed to reduce light pollution and utilise LED technology, whilst the use of SMA surfacing has helped to reduce noise levels from vehicles.

Well done to our site and office teams and supply chain partners whose collective efforts contributed to the delivery of a fantastic new public space.
