Land and Water scoops two major wins
Waterways contractor Land & Water has landed the multimillion-pound Canal & River Trust national dredging contract, making it dredging supplier to the trust for the next ten years. This award came just days after the company won a place on all four lots of the Environment Agency's South-east region minor works framework.
The dredging tenders were supported by Land & Water’s environmental strategy, part of which includes constructing a series of improved wildlife habitats across the UK. These habitats will be formed by reusing dredged sediments and other soils to re-engineer a string of redundant waste sites, turning wasteland into wildlife havens.
The sites will allow Land & Water to reclaim and reuse silt and other materials from dredging and associated infrastructure projects thus contributing to their commitment to work towards a less than 10% disposal policy.
Adrian Gascoyne, managing director at Land & Water Services, said: “Land & Water always strive to work in partnership with our clients. We are keen to maximise the collaborative advantages available from true team work, workspace sharing and early project involvement. We call ourselves ‘imagineers’ because we are highly committed to driving value though innovation, forward planning, sequential work programming and adjoining projects.
“This not only minimises mobilisation costs (it can cost up to £50k to put all the equipment required onto the water) but also allows us to shorten the project lifecycle, saving time, money and lessening any environmental impact. In delivering these frameworks we worked hard to firstly understand our client’s problems, solve them, add value and then we have provided a suit of collaborative ideas that will improve our collective businesses.”
