STAFF at a Huthwaite firm are celebrating after being recognised for their work during a prestigious ceremony.
Civil, mechanical and electrical engineers NMCNomenca were highly commended for carrying out rehabilitation work of the sewer in the historic spa town of Buxton, identified as critical by Severn Trent Water.
The Nunn Close firm was commended in the team achievement category of the ICE East Midlands Merit Awards, held by the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) at the Nottingham Belfry Hotel.
Said Chris Jones, contracts manager for infrastructure at NMCNomenca: “As an East Midlands based civil, mechanical and electrical contractor NMCNomenca are proud to be associated with the ICE and its annual East Midlands Merit Awards, and to havet been recognised for works carried out in Buxton.
“Working for Severn Trent Water, as part of the AMP5 framework, and in close partnership with Derbyshire County Council, the sewer rehabilitation of Buxton was a success that benefited both local residents and businesses, along with tourists alike.”
The awards are an annual celebration of the region’s best civil engineering projects, which this year attracted a record number of entries.
Said Malcolm Jackson, regional director at ICE East Midlands: “Buxton town centre attracts a lot of traffic and the team worked to minimise disruption and developed a reputation for explaining what was to happen and making it happen on time.”
