Flood

Delivering specialist expertise on your flood defence project

With the effects of climate change becoming more prevalent, our flood defences need to be more resilient, robust and flexible than ever before, helping to ensure that communities, businesses and stakeholders are protected from the devastating impacts of floods.

With our extensive experience of working on the WEM programme, and helping to deliver works on some of the UK’s largest and most complex flood defence schemes, we are able to provide multiple services to the flood sector, ranging from the implementation of biodiversity offsetting, through to vegetation clearance, tree clearance, protected species translocation, and the delivery of large-scale ecological mitigation schemes.

Thomson’s involvement as part of the delivery team was key to producing an end product that both looked great but that also met with the design criteria, ensuring the scheme will continue to perform into the future.

One of Redrow’s placemaking principles is the creation of new or enhancement of existing wildlife habitats. We have worked closely with Thomson Ecology on a number of initiatives to ensure that the local wildlife has a suitable environment during and post construction.

The project was managed professionally, with the required updates performed clearly, concisely and on time. The field work was delivered to a high standard, with surveyors communicating and presenting themselves professionally – important as they were also representing our organisation; the quality of the fieldwork was first-rate.

"This was ABC Electrification’s first experience of working with Thomson Ecology and I have found them extremely professional and collaborative in their support in delivering this complex and challenging programme of works.”

Jane Jukes, Environmental Manager for ABC Electrification

I was very pleased with the service that Thomson Ecology provided. The surveys and associated reports were delivered professionally and on time.
