I am delighted that CIWEM is investing in the development of 106-109 Saffron Hill, London, creating a multi-purpose building constructed to high environmental standards.
Our team are keen to get onto this project, the strong ethical values of CIWEM and 8build have created a great working relationship and we know that this building will be a proud legacy not only for CIWEM but for 8build as well, said Chris Lawrence, Project Director of 8build.

I think that the CIWEM
Award shows that we have been judged by our peers to have achieved our aim.
