Flood and coastal erosion risk management appointment

Posted: Monday 8th July 2013

Royal HaskoningDHV is delighted to have been appointed to the Environment Agency’s new Water and Environment Management (WEM) framework as part of the revitalised Team Van Oord joint venture with partners Van Oord, May Gurney and JT Mackley.

The four year framework runs from 2013 to 2017 and is valued at an estimated £1bn, the asset delivery partners will work in joint ventures to primarily serve the agency’s flood and coastal erosion risk management function. They will also be available to risk management authorities, Defra delivery bodies, local authorities, internal drainage boards, the Scottish Environment Protection Agency and the Welsh Government. The framework replaces SFRM, NEECA and NCF as the Environment Agency’s procurement vehicle for its Flood and Coastal Risk Management activities

Team Van Oord Ltd formally brings together Van Oord UK, May Gurney, JT Mackley and Royal HaskoningDHV. The four partners already have a well-established track record of delivering to the Environment Agency for many years and are now able to successfully implement any project that becomes available on the market with in-house resource from start to finish – including feasibility studies, environmental assessments, design, construct, maintenance and operational aspects.

For the new framework Royal HaskoningDHV has joined as the fourth member of Team Van Oord. Royal HaskoningDHV’s core values of delivering innovative solutions and engineering excellence rounds out Team Van Oord’s capabilities. Royal HaskoningDHV brings in world-wide experience in a broad range of consultancy disciplines including flood and coastal risk management, environmental assessments, maritime and port developments.

This new partnership will build on Royal HaskoningDHV’s work under the previous National Engineering and Environmental Consultancy Agreement (NEECA) and Strategic Flood Risk Management (SFRM) consultancy frameworks and Team Van Oord’s work on the National Contractors Framework (NCF).

The WEM framework consists of four lots: engineering and related services, modelling mapping and data, environmental services, and asset delivery.

It is expected that around 75 per cent of its capital programme spending will be via Lot 4, which encompasses consulting, design and construction services undertaken either separately or as design-and-build projects.

Steven Magenis, director of strategic development at Royal HaskoningDHV said: “The addition of Royal HaskoningDHV to the existing Team Van Oord partnership will enable the joint venture to deliver the full range of Flood and Coastal Risk Management projects, from feasibility and environmental assessment through design and on to construction, operation and maintenance. This will enable the Environment Agency to continue to make efficiency savings and to maximise the outcomes from its investment in Flood and Coastal Risk Management work.”
