Environment Agency Framework

6 January 2002 09:05 - BAM Nuttall Ltd

Nuttall has been chosen as one of seven contractors that will share in more than £400 million worth of flood defence work through out England and Wales. The five-year framework deal will cover most of the agency’s capital construction requirements as well as land remediation.

Seven contractors have been selected because the agency wishes to appoint enough firms to cover the country without splitting the work into too many small packages. Much of the work will involve the winning firms taking on outline designs for fluvial and coastal flood defence works from the agency and developing them through to construction. Work is due to commence next year.
