Bachy Soletanche has been shortlisted for five entries, across four categories at the 2023 Ground Engineering Awards.

The geotechnical specialist’s commitment to technical excellence has been recognised with two entries from HS2’s Old Oak Common and Tideway, both major projects being delivered in London. The company’s continued drive towards a more sustainable future has also been acknowledged with the team being shortlisted for their collaborative work on Tracking Embodied Carbon Consumption during Pile Construction at Canary Wharf.

Project success has been highlighted in the Under £500k category for a scheme delivered at the Aled Isaf Reservoir in North Wales.  Bachy Soletanche designed and delivered a robust geotechnical solution that successfully sealed the three major leakage paths.

In addition to this, Bachy Soletanche is shortlisted for the prestigious Contractor of the Year award, one of the three trophies the company won last year.
