The long-term project could claim one of the Innovate NZTM Awards of Excellence 2011. Organised by the Association of Consulting Engineers NZ, the awards recognise innovation in consulting engineering. Convenor of judges Allan Leahy said the variety of projects up for awards -- many delivering signifi- cant environmental benefits -- illustrated the crucial role consulting engineers play in New Zealand. These are New Zealand firms, delivering innovative, ground- breaking and often unique techni- cal solutions to many complex projects which benefit millions of people in New Zealand and beyond in their everyday lives, he said. Tonkin & Taylor has been lead consultant on the Silverstream Landfill project during the past 14 years, working with Hutt City Council to upgrade the site. The team has overcome complex geological and groundwater con- ditions, steep topography and proximity to the Wellington fault- line. The result is an economically viable extension and a landfill comprising innovative technical solutions. The site demonstrates best practice in design and operation, meeting the highest levels of environmental protection. MWH is also a finalist for its work on repairs to the Hutt Valley outfall pipeline to Pencarrow which has helped to extend the life of a $60m council asset. The 18.3 kilometre pipeline, which serves the 140,000 Hutt Valley population, consists of 4000 prestressed concrete rubber ring- jointed pipes. In places it runs under narrow winding roads and often below groundwater level. Winners of the Innovate NZTM Awards of Excellence will be announced on August 6.
