eight2O, the largest delivery alliance in the UK water sector, will carry out £1.75bn of capital investment work during the AMP6 period (2015-2020). The partners involved are Thames Water, two design & build joint ventures, SMB and CABV with Stantec providing design and environmental capability to SMB and programme controls for the whole alliance.
So how are environmental risks managed on a programme of such scale?
The key to the effective delivery of environmental compliance in a joint venture is to establish an experienced, multi-disciplinary team, benefitting from clear and effective tools, templates and processes, and communicating regularly says Stantec’s Principal Environmental Advisor Chris Rochford.
In this Institute of Water article, Chris shares his thoughts on how teams must work closely with engineering and contractor colleagues, regulators and stakeholders to develop consistent procedures that everyone understands, promote best practice and bring ideas and innovation into the alliance to benefit projects.
