The balance between reducing the high accident rate and congestion on a busy junction, while at the same time providing a safer pedestrian crossing was recognised by the judges. They applauded the use of digital technologies, including a digital twin. The traffic management phasing plan allowed safe working areas to be established with segregation between live traffic and construction workers. The site was also recognised as a Considerate Constructor site, achieving a certificate of excellence.

The project used local suppliers within a 20-mile radius, which helped drive local skills employment. The works were delivered with an exemplar safety record, on time in spite of Covid-19 restrictions, and under budget. By using a hybrid power system in their project offices, the project reduced CO2 by 220 tonnes, added £2.2 million in social value terms, and engaged with 180 local students at STEM events.
This project was also commended in the Team Achievement category.

The Boston Barrier provides one of the best standards of tidal flood defence outside of London and also aims to reduce the risk of tidal flooding to over 17,000 properties in Boston, Lincolnshire.
The project is predicted to deliver economic benefits of over £1.1 billion, providing significant protection to local infrastructure assets, including the A16 trunk road and the Boston to Skegness railway.
For the Sustainability Award, the judges applauded the project team's outstanding application of all 17 of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs). The team used each goal to define and improve their project, impressing the judges with their high level of compliance to the targets related to each of the goals. The project includes a 25-metre wide rising gate across the section of the River Witham, to the south of central Boston between Black Sluice and the Grade II listed Maud Foster Sluice. The Boston Barrier is part of the government’s long term investment in flood and coastal defences.
