“Sound in the marine environment is a topic which is now recognised as being of considerable importance to dredging and marine construction: it is another example of the need for a holistic approach to projects, where engineering and construction needs to work hand in hand with the environment in order to deliver great results for both. This is achievable and is being delivered by good practice.
“We use the HAMMER toolbox we have developed at HR Wallingford to help understand potential sound impacts on sensitive species at development sites. We look forward to continuing to innovate in order to provide the best possible services to our clients and the industry.”

This year’s winners were announced at a gala dinner and ceremony at the Marriott Grosvenor Square, Mayfair, London on the 10th November 2016.
