Applebridge Family Shortlisted for CENE 2024 Awards

CENE 2024

We are thrilled to share that companies within the Applebridge Family have been shortlisted for several categories at the prestigious Construction Excellence North East (CENE) Awards 2024. The ceremony will take place at The Grand Hotel, Gosforth Park on Friday, 14th June.

Our entries have been recognised in the following categories:

Delivering Value

Our company, ZTL, has been shortlisted for Project V. This project involved the complex remediation of a former factory site, standing out through innovative and environmentally sustainable practices. ZTL's approach dramatically reduced the need for imported materials by implementing bulk earthworks, screening, and soil stabilisation. This not only led to substantial cost savings and a shorter timeline but also aligned with our zero-to-landfill ethos, enhancing the project's environmental credentials.


The Applebridge Family has also been recognised for our commitment to innovation. Our blue ocean strategy targets uniquely challenging projects, compelling us to innovate constantly. From pioneering ground stabilisation techniques to partnering with Material Evolution for sustainable concrete, we are dedicated to pushing the boundaries. Our investments in new technologies, like GPS for our earthworks and drone technology for surveying, further underscore our commitment to improving efficiency and sustainability in construction.

Infrastructure Project of the Year

We are doubly honoured in this category, with both ZTL and Applebridge Utilities being shortlisted for the South Bank Watercourse project. This critical piece of sustainable infrastructure involved realigning two existing becks to create a new natural water management channel. Utilising GPS excavation and recycled materials, the project includes one of the largest Gabion Wall retaining structures in Europe. It also features the installation of bespoke box culverts beneath live services and a 66kV electricity feed to support the Seah Wind Monopile Factory.

We look forward to the awards ceremony and the opportunity to celebrate the achievements of our industry peers. We will keep you updated on the outcomes from the ceremony. Stay tuned!
