Mott MacDonald has just reported that the work on £16 million Greatham South Flood Alleviation scheme has been completed.

The BAM Nuttall Mott MacDonald (BMM) joint venture was commissioned by the Environment Agency in 2017 to design and build the second and final phase of the management scheme which addresses flooding concerns in Port Clarence and Greatham South area in the north of England.

The Environment Agency partnered with two businesses that have a presence in the area, INOVYN gave necessary land for realignment and SABIC provided funding for construction.

Once secured, the BAM Nuttall Mott MacDonald JV was re-commissioned by the Environment Agency at the beginning of 2017, following a successful initial design phase, to provide further detailed design support and construction.

Work included raising existing defenses, building new defenses, installing culverts and habitat development. Environmental impact assessments were performed, and construction was also supervised from an environmental perspective.

Project manager Howard Clapp commented: “It is fantastic to work on a project that will protect the homes and livelihoods of so many people. The site of the flood alleviation scheme is recognized environmentally because of its importance to seal populations and as a habitat for birds. It’s been great to work on a project where we could provide improvements for both people and local habitats.”

Works on the scheme were completed in December 2018.
