BARRIER SCOOPS CONCRETE SUSTAINABILITY AWARD

CONCRTETE QUARTERLY / WINTER 05 - ROUND UP

The new concrete step barrier has won the inaugural Concrete Centre Sustainability Award. The barrier, which is designed to prevent that most dangerous of motorway accidents - the crossover, where a vehicle crashes through a motorway barrier into the path of on-coming traffic - was praised for its holistic approach to the environmental, social and economic requirements of road safety. Runners-up included the Royal Geographical Society Study Centre in London, designed by Studio Downie; Marshalls Precast's concrete paving in a sustainable urban drainage project for Berkeley Homes in Oxford and Slice House at Porto Alegra in Brazil, designed by Proctor-Rihl.
