A Team Van Oord employee has been named the winner of a prestigious new health and safety award presented by the Environment Agency.
Team Van Oord was on hand to assist the Environment Agency with clearing a 600mm dia storm drain over the Easter weekend, protecting homes and businesses in the Calmore area of Southampton from flooding.
Three schemes carried out by Team Van Oord working on behalf of the Environment Agency feature in the latest edition of the Agency’s ‘Current’ magazine.
Team Van Oord is supporting the call to #PressForProgress, the central theme of this year’s International Women’s Day (8 March).
Under the theme ‘Risk, resilience and response in a changing climate’, Flood & Coast 2018 will once again set out to advance the debate about flood and coast erosion between government bodies, local authorities, major infrastructure and asset managers and affected communities.
Preparations for a new tidal defence scheme in the Devon town of Exmouth are underway, with a series of surveys taking place during the coming months.
A new £2.7m flood scheme, which reduces risk to more than 200 residential and commercial properties in the south of Birmingham, has been officially opened.
Work is underway on phase one of a major beach recycling project which, when complete, will provide improved protection against flooding to approximately 5,500 homes located in and around the town of Sheerness.
Emma Howard-Boyd, Chair of the Environment Agency, was given a tour of the Shoreham Adur Tidal Walls site as part of a recent visit to the scheme.
With 50% of the work on the Shoreham Adur Tidal Walls scheme now complete, construction is expected to finish by the end of 2018.
