BEGIN pilot site shortlisted for a Susdrain Award

06 July 2020 - Published by Ellen Kelder
Enfield's Broomfield Park Wetlands has been shortlisted for a Susdrain Award. CIRIA's second bi-annual susdrain SuDS Awards will be held online this year with a virtual and more energetic format. This celebratory event will showcase outstanding projects across the UK and will announce the SuDS Champion of 2020.

The susdrain SuDS Awards 2020 will celebrate exceptional SuDS, and will give due recognition to a SuDS Champion who is instrumental in delivering exceptional SuDS.

The four award categories for SuDS projects are:

• New build larger-scale SuDS
• New build small scale SuDS 
• Large scale retrofit SuDS
• Small scale retrofit SuDS

Winners and/or commendations will be celebrated and there will be an overall winner recognising the scheme most effectively delivering SuDS that provide multiple benefits.

The Awards provide a platform to share the best SuDS that have been implemented over the last four years, recognising high-quality planning, design, construction and maintenance of sustainable drainage. Finalists will showcase the key elements of their schemes in fast-paced presentations before the winners are announced. Winning and highly commended schemes will be given the opportunity to present in depth case studies in webinars planned for September.

SuDS are often implemented due to the ability of a single champion to inspire, inform and influence others to get on board, share good practice, and deliver SuDS. The susdrain SuDS Champion 2020 is voted for by the SuDS community and will be presented to an individual, who has demonstrably gone ‘the extra mile’ to deliver and encourage the uptake of SuDS. 

Vote for BEGIN partner Bronwyn Buntine as your SuDS Champion 2020 here!
