Winner – EP Painting – Project: Oikos Storage Limited – Essex
The project was situated on the reclaimed marshland at Canvey Island close to the Thames Estuary. It involved the application of protective coatings including fully detailed initial preparations, on large storage vessels plus walkways linking 15 of the 16 vessels about 17 metres above ground level, also the steel sundry permanent stairways throughout were included.
Highly Commended – Roy Hankinson Limited – Project: Powick New Bridge, Worcester.
The bridge carries main road traffic over the River Teme. The specification for this 1837’s structure included stripping back to a bright finish then bringing forward using a five coat epoxy system to a high gloss finish. The steel under the span was complicated and difficult to access. Various embellishments on external faces were picked out in white and some colour was used on the Bridge’s heraldic shield.
