Roughan & O'Donovan (ROD) is delighted to announce the A6 Dungiven to Drumahoe Dualling scheme in Northern Ireland has been awarded a BREEAM Infrastructure ‘Excellent Whole Project Award’, with an exceptionally high score of 89.8%. The award recognises the design team’s commitment to meeting the highest standards of sustainability on the project and to safeguarding the environment for the local community.

Commenting on the award, ROD Director, Marc Jones, said: “Our core project values on the A6 scheme were the delivery of a sustainable infrastructure solution and the mitigation of environmental impact. Our design maximised the sustainable reuse of locally won materials and included provision of fish passable culverts, river enhancement works, ecological SuDs ponds, a landscape design to cater for bats, screening for local communities, mammal underpasses, and over half a million wildflowers, trees and shrubs.” 

ROD Associate, Martin Brown, added: “Low noise surfacing was developed for the pavement design, using a performance foundation that maximised the use of locally won material while providing significant carbon saving by reducing haulage trips, minimising the impact on local communities and the environment.”
