Yellow Dam Spillway

We focus on managing and controlling water and the impact water has on client’s assets and infrastructure.

Working closely with our modelling, hydrology and ecology teams to ensure that designs are developed to create efficient, effective and sustainable solutions. We aim to achieve this with minimal environmental impact during design, construction, operation and decommissioning.

We have extensive experience of working for the Environment Agency, Rail Sector and Local Authorities as well as within the private sector, including commercial organisations and developers. We have also been appointed on Engineering Services Frameworks with Local Authorities to provide an emergency response.


Since 2013 we have been part of the JBA Bentley joint venture delivering planned and emergency response works for the Environment Agency (EA) and other RMAs under the Water and Environmental Management (WEM) Framework.

This has seen our engineering teams grow and develop in to providing designs for major flood defence schemes, for towns such as Ulverston, and developing emergency response works at the Foss Barrier in York, in the aftermath of the 2015 floods.

We are a key supplier to the EA on their Anglian Asset Refurbishment Programme of Works, delivering over 100 asset improvement projects to date.
