Update:2014-12-31

It was reported from Mott MacDonald days ago that the Pakistan Sindh Water Section Improvement Project Phase-I (WSIP-I), which is mainly composed of the Rehabilitation of Upper & Lower Nara Canal and the Makhi Complex and Khipro Canal undertaken by CWE with a total contract value of USD101,500,000 representing 73% of the total investment, was awarded the "International Building Project of the Year 2014" of the British Construction Industry Awards (BCIA). This award is another honor won by CWE thereof after the project was declared as a model project of environmental protection in south Asia by the World Bank.

 

The British Construction Industry Awards are referred to as the "Oscar" of British construction industry and famous worldwide for the strict application criteria and evaluation procedures. The judging panel's comment on the project read "this massive project engaged communities and authorities across the region to deliver a coordinated and well-executed project that will reinvigorate the region's canals and irrigation systems".

 

The Sindh Water Section Improvement Project Phase-I (WSIP-I), financed 80% by the World Bank and 20% by the Government of Sindh, includes rehabilitation of the Nara Canal, distributaries and associated structures to significantly improve the canal water conveying capacity and meet the ever increasing demand for irrigation water.

 

This award is an achievement made through intensive communication and sincere cooperation among the Employer, the Consultant and the Contractor and a honor won by joint efforts, which greatly enhanced the reputation of CWE as an international contractor and weighed a lot in CWE's subsequent project undertaking and market exploration.
