Our Managing Director brought into the office today a selection of sweets for us all to enjoy for Halloween…
Today, when we were instructed by our client to act as their Highway Planning Consultant, we received an appointment from them on a very interesting project to provide an Access Appraisal Study for a proposed residential development in North Yorkshire.
Our Client appointed us today to act as their Transportation Consultant to provide a Transport Statement for a proposed retail development in West Yorkshire.
We were very pleased with the service received and the positive outcome for our client, and would not hesitate to recommend for flood risk assessments.
Thanks very much for helping us with this project.

Fairhurst, the Multi Disciplinary Engineering Consultancy whom Sanderson Associates became part of in June 2016 have recently scooped three prestigious awards.
Forth Road Bridge – Truss End Repair

Fairhurst projects were well represented at the Saltire Awards 2016 with the Forth Road Bridge: Truss End Repair winning the award for Greatest Contribution to Scotland and Gourock Pier Re-development project being awarded a Project Commendation, the second award given to this project.
Following the failure of the truss end link of the Forth Road Bridge in December 2015, Fairhurst were appointed by AMEY, the operators of the Forth Road Bridge, as designer for the repairs required to the truss end links of the 1.8km suspension bridge. Fairhurst staff worked tirelessly throughout the period of the bridge closure to deliver the design and supervise the transfer of load from the damaged elements of the bridge to the repairs so that the bridge could be opened to traffic.
The judge’s comments were:
‘The project demonstrated a remarkable engineering achievement carried out during a period of adverse weather conditions, whilst ensuring public safety and the structural integrity of the bridge. The expertise and dedication shown by the site team enabled completion ahead of programme and this alleviated the prolonged economic, social and environmental impacts associated with diverting over 70,000 vehicles distance of 33 miles each day.’
Gourock Pier Re-development
The second award of the night was for the Gourock Pier Re-development project where Fairhurst were the lead designer.
The judge’s comments were:
‘The project demonstrates the great benefit that civil engineering brings to society and the local community. The multi-disciplinary project required a range of well designed and constructed elements to come together to totally transform the former derelict waterfront and congested town centre of Gourock. This outstanding regeneration scheme has given the waterfront and town centre back to the community and gives locals and visitors alike an appealing area to visit and in which to trade.
Herald Property Awards for Scotland
Gourock Pierhead Redevelopment recently won the Best Townscape Regeneration Project at the Herald Property Awards for Scotland 2016.
The improvement works in this tight urban setting included a new one way system and an extension/reconfiguration to the existing carpark at the railway station and to the Kempock Street car park, greatly improved the traffic flow and pedestrian movements through the town center and rejuvenating the waterfront setting.
This Glasgow office project, set on the banks of the River Clyde, contained a diverse range of civil engineering elements including coastal protection/ revetment works, reinforced concrete retaining walls, earthworks/up-filling to the foreshore area, roadworks and drainage works. The civil, structural, geo-environmental, water, and transportation teams all worked closely to deliver this winning design.
Gerry Barr and Craig McDowell joined client Riverside Inverclyde and other members of the project team to collect the award.
The project has also been short-listed for two further awards: ‘Civil Trust Award’ and a ‘SURF Award for Best Practice in Community Regeneration’.
