Capita Real Estate and Infrastructure and Black & Veatch joint venture wins four-year Environment Agency framework
July 18, 2019 /3BL Media/ - Climate change and population growth mean that an average £1 billion per year will be spent on flood and coastal resilience measures, over the next 50 years, according to the Environment Agency (EA). As part of its strategy to protect communities the EA has awarded places on both of its Client Support Frameworks (CSF) to Capita Real Estate and Infrastructure and Black & Veatch joint venture (JV).
Both frameworks run for four years. Lot 1 encompasses engineering and technical support; Lot 2 includes carbon management and contract administration services.
Graham Sant, Managing Director - Infrastructure comments, “Capita has developed a strong team of expertise and capabilities in flood risk as well as environmental advisory services over the last four years on the WEM Framework. We are delighted to be working with Black & Veatch on this joint venture, and excited about developing this new offering together.”
“Black & Veatch has supported EA frameworks since 1997. For the new CSFs our expertise in data analytics and digital/artificial intelligence will complement our established consulting, and asset management capabilities,” added Mat Fairfax, Director of Black & Veatch’s professional services business.
Via CSFs the joint venture will help the EA deliver a programme of capital investment and enhancement works on flood defence assets, both fixed and active, as well as wider business requirements. The JV will work collaboratively to ensure sustainable, best-value outcomes for the communities the EA protects.
