Murphy project proclaimed ‘Greatest Contribution to London’ at ICE Civil Engineering Awards

Murphy is proud to announce that the Deephams Sewage Treatment Works A630 Major Upgrade Project won at the 2019 ICE London Civil Engineering Awards.

Supported by the Mayor of London, the project won the impressive ‘Greatest Contribution to London’ trophy, which celebrates outstanding civil engineering achievement and ingenuity.

In collaboration with Thames Water, the joint venture of J. Murphy & Sons, AECOM and Kier delivered essential upgrades to the site and was recognised for a number of prestigious achievements.

Peter Walsh, J. Murphy & Sons’ Managing Director said, “It was a pleasure to see our joint venture together with Thames Water pick up the top award at this year's ICE London Civil Engineering Awards - we are very proud of this achievement.

“This win can be attributed to our ‘One Murphy’ approach, utilising our integrated capabilities of piling, plant, electrical, design, process and resource operation to get the job done.”

The £250 million project involved the full construction of a new wastewater treatment process, combined heat and power installations, as well as enhancements to the existing sludge assets and power systems. The works improved odour emissions by 99% and allowed plants to significantly enhance their water quality standards, including the safe discharge of treated water into the River Lee.

Andrew Chappell, Murphy Project Manager said, “Deephams is one of the largest sewage works in the UK and treats wastewater for approximately one million people. Our focus was to carry out the works with little disruption to the operation of the plant and its treatment capability, as it was kept live throughout the project.”

Deephams won ahead of Chiswick Park footbridge, Coal Drops Yard, Hackney Wick station redevelopment, Meridian Water Station, Terminal 3 Flight Connections Centre, Heathrow Airport, Thames Estuary Asset Management 2100, University College London Student Centre, Victoria Station upgrade and Woolwich Ferry new berths.
