Client: Environment Agency
Jackson was appointed by the Environment Agency to construct the UK's largest inalnd flood defence scheme. Spanning 27Km, the flood defence scheme aimed to protect 16,000 homes in Nottingham.
The scheme was constructed in sections to aid project management. The team had to cope with a variety of contrasting working environments, all of which posed their own unique challenges.
Much of the route ran through built-up areas so first class public liaison with residents and businesses was a must. We also had to plan our work around major events such as The Robin Hood Marathon and Race for Life, both of which took place along the riverbank. We also worked adjacent to a live railway line, over a high pressure gas main, under 132Kv overhead cables, and in Attenborough Nature Reserve, a SSSI.
