Environment

We have a rich history of working in the environment sector, dating back to the 1880’s, when as the London and Tilbury Lighterage Company, we worked on the Thames maintaining the waterways of what was the world’s busiest port. Since then, we have gone on to deliver a broad range of environmental work across the UK, including National Frameworks for the Environment Agency, Coal Authority and other Local Authority frameworks.

Under frameworks and individually targeted opportunities, we provide flood prevention, tidal defence, coastal protection works river training, inland waterways and reservoirs, inshore port and marine works and household waste recycling schemes.

We are known for our innovation.

Using the marine plant that we still own and operate today, we built the foundations of the London Eye and designed and installed the temporary works in the Thames that launched this iconic structure.

We also removed, renovated and replaced the cast iron fascia’s of Westminster Bridge, whilst maintaining the traffic above.

Today we continue to be a modern, lean and innovative business, providing services in early contractor involvement, programme and project management, design and build and construct only. Our ethos is to be the partner of choice, and together with our supply chain partners, we have built our reputation on delivering outstanding performance for our customers.

We are fully aligned with the Construction Playbook. Driving better, faster, greener delivery is at the core of what we do. Our locally focused teams work inclusively and collaboratively with our strategic supply chain partners, RMD Kwikform and our inhouse design capability iDesign, alongside our Customers to deliver continuous improvement by harnessing new technologies and ideas. We innovate and use Lean, digital construction, BIM and Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) to deliver exceptional results.

We use digital modelling to develop our temporary works and construction methodology. At our Hessle Foreshore coastal protection project, we developed a solution that maintained access and protected the adjacent SSSI.
