We prefer a satisfied client to a formal award – but it's nice to have both, of course.
Among the notable award-winning projects that we have been involved with is the Zarqa Water Supply in Jordan, which won the 2014 Association of Consulting Engineers of Ireland Overseas Project Award.
In December 2014 we won National Procurement Awards for Supplier Excellence and for the best use of Technology in Supply. The latter was for developing techniques to process data from over 25 different sources on the Cork Main Drainage Project.
We were also shortlisted for the Engineers Ireland Excellence Awards, the Concrete Society Awards, and the RIAI Educational Buildings Awards.
In previous years, Nicholas O'Dwyer has won awards for a many infrastructure projects at home and abroad, including Fullerton Pollan Dam, Newcastle Reservoir and Water Tower, Malimahatso Bridge in Lesotho, Gael Scoil an Escir Road and Ballycoolen Tower.
Our award wining project for Irish Water was the Kerry Central Regional Water Supply Scheme and was voted National Engineering Project of the Year 2018!
The €30 million project is now providing a safe and secure water supply for over 62,000 residents as well as industry and agriculture in the region, and serves the more than 1.1 million tourists who visit the region anually across Tralee, Killarney, Castleisland and Castlemaine.
The scheme's new water treatment plant is amongst the largest in the country and provides over 50 million litres of drinking water every day, with the improved quality of water available now meaning the 62,000 local customers have been removed from the Environmental Protection Agency's Remedial Action List (RAL).
