AMEC goes the extra mile for Northumbrian Water


The Going the Extra Mile (GEM) Awards is an annual competition amongst supply chain partners run by Northumbrian Water, and following our success last year AMEC has again come away with a fantastic spread of wins.

AMEC won three categories, Customer Focus, Health and Safety and Team of the Year Award, with runner up prizes in Customer Focus, Environmental Sustainability and Individual Contribution Awards.

Northumbrian Water is the biggest client of our UK Environment & Infrastructure business, so it's a strong testament to the success of our long-standing relationship to be recognised in this way.

Winner of The Customer Focus Award was Peter Foskett, Jonathon Fisher and team for the Benfield Road Flooding Scheme project with runner up of Andy Mathieson, Jonathon Fisher and team for the Station Road Sewerage, Prudhoe project.
