Fugroâs innovative work on the condition assessment of a water supply aqueduct has won industry acclaim in this yearâs New Civil Engineer (NCE) Tunnelling Awards. The development triumphed in the Ground Investigation and Monitoring category in a joint submission with water company, United Utilities, and infrastructure group, J Murphy & Sons. Based on the use of ground penetrating radar (GPR), Fugro collaborated on a high efficiency, high accuracy approach to non-intrusive condition scanning of concrete tunnels at the Haweswater Aqueduct in north-west England. The judges were impressed by the strong teamwork involved, and with the capacity of the system to collect a large volume of data on the condition of a piece of critical infrastructure in a very limited time window. The awards showcase the latest technical achievements and best practice in tunnelling to a worldwide audience.
