BMM awarded two more WEM deals by EA
Joint venture BAM Nuttall Mott MacDonald (BMM) has picked up two further contracts through the WEM (Water and Environment Management) framework with the Environment Agency (EA).
Following on from contract awards including Leeds and Great Yarmouth, these latest successes involve the delivery of the Exeter Flood Alleviation Scheme and the North Asset Recovery Programme.
The Exeter scheme involves the construction of flood defences on both banks of the River Exe from Cowley Bridge to Countess Weir. The defences will include walls, banks, demountable weirs, gates and glass panels. Landscaping and habitat area creation will also be undertaken.
The North Asset Recovery Programme involves the recovery of flood defences following the storms and floods that took place during last winter. BMM has been awarded the works in the York & North East and Lower Aire & Upper Aire catchments.
The scope includes inspecting and surveying assets, developing designs and carrying out construction to return assets to their pre-storm condition.
Commenting on these two contract awards BMM WEM framework director Allan Rogers said: ‘The WEM Framework is approaching its third anniversary and we a 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.”
