The Environment Agency - Flood Defences

Various multi-million pound flood defence commissions on a national basis.

Due to the environmental sensitivity of the flood defence schemes, a close working relationship has been established between Faithful+Gould’s team, The Environment Agency and the various other bodies involved. Some schemes have involved construction in an SSSI protected area, for which we have been instrumental in discussions with English Nature. Reconstruction, temporary, and permanent works were necessary to replace existing flood defences.

Flood defence schemes using our project management, cost consultancy and planning supervision teams have successfully implemented the re-direction of rivers, the construction of control structures, weirs and bunds. In addition, completed projects include: The replacement of existing flood defences, reconstruction of, and extensions to, outfall structures; and enhancement of existing erosion protection to embankments.
