EA publishes latest edition of Current Magazine

The Environment Agency has published the latest edition of its Current Magazine, with a number of references to Team Van Oord and its partners.

The quarterly magazine highlights innovation and good practice in projects carried out on behalf of the Environment Agency, in a bid to encourage the Agency and its partners to ‘innovate, share and standardise’ the delivery of projects for communities.

The November 2018 edition features an interview with James Bevan, Chief Executive of the Environment Agency, who discusses climate change and engineering.

With regards to Team Van Oord, the magazine includes:

  • Phil Ramsay, Team Van Oord’s National Framework Manager, collecting a SHEW Excellent Behaviour award.
  • An interview with Tony Camilleri, managing director of TVO partner Mackley, about the use of tropical hardwood timber in the Herne Bay Coast Protection Works.

The November edition also includes articles focusing on innovation, building information modelling (BIM), programming and safety, health, environment and wellbeing (SHE&W).

In the foreword, Steve Moore, National Director of Operations (Assets and Incidents), Environment Agency, said:

“We are halfway through the current six-year flood risk capital programme and I am delighted that, through our collective focus, we are more confident that we can meet our 300,000 homes better protected targets.

“There is more to do but our efforts are showing dividends.”

The WEM Framework is a commercial agreement between the Environment Agency, consultants and contractors, with agreed terms for the award of individual contracts. It was signed in July 2013 and is a vital component in the Environment Agency’s ‘Sustainable Engineering Procurement Strategy’ (SEPS). Team Van Oord is a WEM Tier 1 supplier.
