Following on from contract awards including Leeds and Great Yarmouth the BMM joint venture has now picked up two further contracts through the Water and Environment Management framework.
These latest successes involve the delivery of the £32m Exeter Flood Alleviation Scheme and the North Asset Recovery Programme.
The next phase of the Exeter scheme after Van Oord completed phase one will involve 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.
Building work starts in June with a great deal of construction activity taking place around the city over the next two years.
The scheme will protect 2,270 homes and 1,000 commercial properties including the St David’s Station and main line railway, Countess Wear sewage treatment works and several important roads within the city at Exe Bridges, the A377, and Marsh Barton.
The North Asset Recovery Programme involves the recovery of flood defences following the storms and floods that took place during last winter.
The BMMJV 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.
BMMJV WEM framework director Allan Rogers said: “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. ”
