Award for COLAS CZ, a.s. in the Prestigious Construction of South Bohemia 2015 competition

April 9, 2015

On 9 April 2015, our company received an Honourable Mention for the construction of "Pavement along the route II/163, Vyšší Brod"

The honourable mentions were awarded to construction projects completed in the South Bohemian Region between 2012 and 2014. COLAS CZ, a.s., the Road Engineering Division, the South territory, was awarded in the Transport and Other Engineering Works category. The project amounting to CZK 21.7 million, excl. VAT with a deadline of 5 months and completion in 2014, was managed by Mr. Oldřich Jakl.

SIGNIFICANCE – VALUE OF THE PROJECT AND THE CONSTRUCTION:

The designer and the contractor had to deal with the location of the construction on a rocky ravine in a pass above the Vltava River, on the original twisting historical road. The project involved the extension and adaptation of the road to current standards, the creation of space and the construction of a pavement in this particularly dangerous passage connecting Vyšší Brod with the railway station. This could only be achieved by construction of a large range of retaining and breast walls using various systems and their technical, geotechnical and aesthetic integration in the terrain. The work was further complicated by the fact that the importance of the road prevented its long-term closure and much of the work was performed in traffic conditions. The final quality of the work is perfect and can be compared to the highest European standards.
