Mott MacDonald appointed to three Environment Agency frameworks
Mott MacDonald has been appointed to three of the four new Water and Environment Management (WEM) frameworks by the Environment Agency in England and Wales. Over the next 10 years, the Environment Agency is investing more than £2.5 billion to reduce the risk from river and coastal flooding and to secure social and environmental improvements.
Under the frameworks, Mott MacDonald experts will be available to all directorates within the Environment Agency, other risk management authorities and Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs delivery bodies. This includes local authorities and internal drainage boards.
- As part of Lot 1, Mott MacDonald will serve the needs of all risk management authorities for flood modelling, mapping and assessment.
- Under Lot 3, the consultancy will produce flood and coastal risk strategies and project appraisals as well as performance specifications, detailed design and site supervision for flood and coastal erosion solutions.
- In its joint venture with BAM Nuttall on Lot 4, Mott MacDonald will deliver assets and projects in their entirety from conception to completion – including project appraisals, design development and early contractor involvement, design and build contracts, managing programmes of work and the operation and maintenance of assets.
Keith Howells, chairman of Mott MacDonald, commented: “Mott MacDonald has worked with the Environment Agency since its inception and with its predecessor organisations before that, providing technical assistance in strategic flood risk assessment, engineering of flood alleviation schemes and environment services. We’re delighted to continue our work for the agency and look forward playing a crucial role in delivering flood and coastal risk management and environmental enhancements.”
