Borough Viaduct, highly commended



Borough Viaduct receives one more commendation. “A beautiful project, well delivered by a great team” Judges’ comment. The full list of winners is available on the Construction News website.

Presented with clear passion and evident personal dedication, this was a unique project completed in a very tight space on time and to budget while achieving the client’s aims of staying out of the newspapers.

Metres from London Bridge station and surrounded by cultural heritage and listed buildings, there had been talk of a new viaduct in this area for 100 years.

With 283 party wall awards and the viaduct sitting inches from existing buildings – requiring the removal of the tops of others – this project would not have been possible without impressive community involvement by Skanska, a high-level BIM model and a perfectionist commitment to get everything right first time.
