From creating a specially designed floodgate to advising on civil engineering flood protection measures, we can help with all your flood prevention needs. We have carried out civil engineering repairs following floods in 2007 and have been advising the Environment Agency on cost effective flood protection measures since then.

We offer essential construction for reservoirs and dams. We build water management systems, including flood relief channels, storm relief channels, draindown facilities and spillways. We also offer maintenance services, including leak repairs, concrete repairs, relining work, control tower refurbishment and desilting projects. Our large scale work includes constructing overflow channels, bypass pipework, rock armouring, dam relining and reservoir decommissioning.

We also offer sewerage and drainage services. Contact us today.

What our customers say

'As Environment Agency project manager, I would just like to say a big thank you for the effort and efficient team work that you all put in to enable us to deliver this project at very short notice and in very tight timescales and to budget. For most of us it was the first time that we had worked together and I appreciated the way you all contributed and did your bit to enable swift delivery and cost savings during a busy time at the end of the financial year, all worked very well and the project ran very smoothly.

Richard, thank your construction team for the liaison with the Football Club tenant and for supporting the Thurnby Nirvana Football Club, they are very happy. This is very important to us as we have to go there to do maintenance for many years long after our project is done and this always keeps good relations going with our customers and is in line with the government’s views for localism.'
- Environment Agency Dakyn Road
'As we are nearing the end of the above we would like to express our appreciation in the way your Agency and contractors have conducted themselves in every aspect during this process.

Everyone we came into contact with expressed their willingness to assist us with any queries we had and by giving us extra practical help when asked to do so. Alan Cox from Birch Brothers and his team all appeared to work together very well in, at times, difficult circumstances.'
- Residents on an Environment Agency Flood Alleviation Scheme Broom
