Jackson JV wins three places on Environment Agency's new framework

JacksonHyder, a joint venture company between Jackson Civil Engineering and Hyder Consulting, has been selected for three lots on the Environment Agency's new Water and Environmental Management (WEM) Framework which is worth more than £2.5 billion over the next 10 years. The Framework will give access to suppliers in the Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management (FCERM) market and is available to the Environment Agency as well as all other Risk Management Authorities. The JacksonHyder team are delighted to have won places on the modelling, design and construction lots within the framework.

Richard Neall, Chief Executive of Jackson Civil Engineering said: "We're over the moon with this result. I am so pleased for the team who will now have the opportunity to deliver something new and exciting. We believe that a truly integrated approach is the only way to achieve the next level of efficiencies in the UK and we aim to make that happen by working with the Environment Agency throughout the entire project cycle, as an integrated designer-contractor team. How could you not be excited about that?"

In an industry still dominated by a culture of 'those who design' and 'those who build', JacksonHyder offers a completely different model. As a fully integrated designer-contractor joint venture company, JacksonHyder will deliver more pounds in the ground via early contractor involvement, design savings and smarter, more buildable solutions. Both parties have extensive experience in working collaboratively, with over 75% of their combined workload coming from framework contracts.

Adam Davies, Managing Director of Water at Hyder Consulting, added: "This is a fantastic result. It matters to our people that we are working on this. We have a real passion for solving both simple and complex problems, and providing seamless support at all stages through the design and build project cycle. Coming together as a JV allows us to utilise the best person for the role, without the need for man-marking. We look forward to applying our multi-sector engineering expertise to consistently deliver safe, sustainable solutions, in a cost-effective way."
