We are delighted to announce that we have made the shortlist for a Brownfield Briefing award in the category ‘Best re-use of Materials’.
Our nomination success follows the completion of the significant restoration project of the spoil tip at Womersley Quarry in Yorkshire. The 4R Group were commissioned by Harworth Estates, work started in September 2016 and was completed in the autumn of 2018. This successful restoration used over 89,000 tonnes of materials read the case study here.
Without significant intervention such as this, colliery spoil is unable to grow or sustain plant life. Growth across the site is now thriving and there is significant visual improvement to the landscape adding areas of ecological interest and aesthetic value to the site.
We look forward to celebrating at the 15th anniversary Brownfield Briefing Awards ceremony on the 19th September in London Good luck to all the finalists!
