A multi-million pound business park development on Anglesey has received a prestigious industry award for its sustainable credentials.
One of the recipients of the CEEQUAL Outstanding Achievement Award is North Wales civil engineering company Jones Bros.
The family-owned firm built the infrastructure for Parc Cybi, a 120-acre mixed housing and business development between Holyhead and Trearddur Bay.
Parc Cybi was designed by Atkins Consultants on behalf of the Welsh Assembly Government. All companies involved received the CEEQUAL award for their approach to sustainability on the site.
CEEQUAL is the assessment and awards scheme for improving sustainability in civil engineering. Parc Cybi won the category for archaeology and cultural heritage at a reception at the Institution of Civil Engineers in central London.
It was also highly commended in the water and materials categories. As part of its work Jones Bros built a new link road to join with junction 2 of the A55 on Anglesey, as well as a road through the middle of the development. It also carried out drainage and kerbing work and built a bridge.
Instead of transporting rock onto the site, Jones Bros recycled 20,000 tonnes of what was excavated. The company’s own crushing and screening division produced all the required material to the right specification – saving 1,000 vehicle movements to and from the site.
Jones Bros managing director Huw Jones said: “We are pleased that Parc Cybi’s sustainable credentials have been recognised by such a respected industry body.
“Here at Jones Bros we are proud of the work we did on the scheme in partnership with the other bodies involved.”
Founded in the 1950s, Jones Bros employs 270 people and has its national headquarters in Ruthin, Denbighshire. The company is working on 20 projects around the UK including the £35m Porthmadog bypass in a joint venture with Balfour Beatty.
Parc Cybi was one of eight infrastructure and civil engineering projects in the UK to be presented with an Outstanding Achievement Award by CEEQUAL.
