Meta Engineering, among the award-winning projects in the Premios Caminos Madrid 2020
1st March 2021
All the Meta Engineering team we feel truly honoured and overjoyed to have won the Award for the Best Performance in Engineering or Civil Engineering Project by a SME in 2020, awarded by the Madrid Professional Association of Civil Engineers in the 13th year that the annual awards ceremony has been held.
We were given the award in recognition of our project to extend Line 11 of the Madrid Metro system along the section from Plaza Elíptica to Conde de Casal. This extension will allow Line 11 to triple its daily number of users, which will go from the current figure of 25,000 to around 75,000, and will help to shift some of the burden of passengers from Line 6.
One member of our team, Antonio Gómez, the Head of Rail Transport Area and author of the project, collected the prize alongside Miguel Núñez, the General Director of Infrastructure in the Regional Government of Madrid, during the gala which was held in a hybrid form for the first time ever, combining broadcasts with a limited number of attendees at the event and taking all necessary health and safety precautions.
The ceremony also helped towards charitable actions since the Association will make a donation to Messengers of Peace thanks to the people who connected to the gala while it was being held, which will go towards a project to help underprivileged people gain access to public transport in Madrid.
We want to say a huge thanks to the Association for this recognition, and to all the team at Meta Engineering who made this possible through their professionalism, effort and commitment towards a shared project that we hope will set the bar for projects of this kind in Spain.
A huge THANK YOU to everyone.
