Bam Mott MacDonald JV wins water double

NCE stock water

A joint venture between Bam Nuttall and Mott MacDonald has won two new contracts through the Environment Agency’s water and environment management framework.

The duo will work on the Exeter Flood Alleviation Scheme and the North Asset Recovery Programme.

The Exeter scheme involves constructing flood defences on the banks of the River Exe. Work includes walls, banks, demountable weirs, gates and glass panels. It is estimated 2,270 homes and surrounding infrastructure will be better protected when the work is complete.

The North Asset Recovery Programme will rebuild flood defences damaged in last winter’s storms. The team will work in the York and North East and Lower Aire and Upper Aire areas.

The joint venture’s framework director Allan Rogers said: “The Water and Environment Management (WEM) framework is approaching its third anniversary and we are pleased with our recent successes.

“A collaborative approach from the Environment Agency and local authorities utilising the WEM framework to procure flood defence schemes is leading to efficient and sustainable outcomes for many stakeholders. BMMJV is looking forward to contributing to the Government targets for protecting 300,000 homes through the WEM framework and beyond.”
