BWB Congratulates Verdion’s iPort Award Success

19 July 2019

BWB were delighted to hear that iPort Rail, Doncaster (Verdion’s rail freight terminal in the iPort Development) has recently won the Major Project of the Year category at this year’s Rail Industry Innovation Awards.

iPort Rail is the first railport built and operated in the UK for the last decade and this intermodal infrastructure sits at the heart of iPort, Verdion’s UK flagship development in the UK which is already home to Amazon, CEVA, Fellowes, Kingsbury, Maritime and Lidl. 

BWB Consulting Ltd delivered the Pre-Tender and Planning Engineering Designs of the Railport on behalf of Verdion. The Buckingham Group Contracting Ltd employed BWB Consulting Ltd as their lead designer for the D&B contract to deliver the Railport. 

We are delighted with Verdion’s success at the awards and extend our congratulations to Buckingham and the entire design team.

BWB Rail continues to go from strength to strength with recent framework and project wins supplementing a series of high profile appointments in the UK and Australia secured through our parent company CAF.

All this comes on the back of recent rolling stock successes in the UK for CAF on Northern Rail and Dockland Light Rail. As CAF continues to grow as a major rolling stock provider in the UK, BWB Rail has ambition to match this in the rail engineering sector.
