VolkerStevin has vast experience in the construction of flood defence projects throughout the UK in both urban and rural areas.
Flood and coastal defence projects include:
We are currently one of the Environment Agency's National Framework Contractors undertaking a second term on NCF2 a continuation of their flood defence programmes throughout England and Wales. Our role includes early contractor involvement during the design development stage and continues through construction to completion and handover to the Area Teams. At all stages we function as an integrated team with both our client and consultant, giving advice on construction techniques, logistics, programming, environmental impact and health and safety mitigation measures and risk analysis. We are continuing to expand our flood defence expertise and have recently completed the £30M White Cart Flood Alleviation Project for Glasgow City Council in Scotland and the £6M Colwyn Bay Coastal Defence Project in Wales.
Working in fluvial waters uses many of the skills that we developed over many years of undertaking marine and coastal protection projects. Flood defence projects are frequently undertaken in highly sensitive areas where there are environmental constraints or where the work is adjacent to residential or business areas. We take great pride in our careful approach to both the environment and third parties. Many of our flood defence projects have received awards in a range of categories such as environment, health and safety and quality of work.
