Accessible and efficient public services are vital to building a sustainable future.

As the demand for public services increases, we face the challenge of meeting the needs of local communities in an affordable budget, whilst supporting our national journey to net zero.

We have a track record of collaborative working with clients in the public sector, including local and central government, National Highways and Homes England as well has NHS trusts, Ministry of Defence and Education providers. Within each project, we have worked in partnership to provide value for money services to local communities. Our trusted teams have formed strong working partnerships with our clients, using effective communication to ensure that our client’s needs are met.

Our multidiscipline team of engineers and scientists provides full assessments and feasibility studies before using the results of those to design and develop thought out, fully costed plans. Our environmental, civil, building, structural and transportation consultants work together to create a whole picture, exploring all angles so that both present and future needs can be anticipated.

We work closely with government and defence agencies to carefully consider every aspect of a scheme. Our extensive portoflio includes multiple government backed highways maintenance and development frameworks, the design of key infrastructure to unlock land for strategic development, and a variety of defence frameworks such as the £1.1bn Aspire Defence scheme which has seen our expert team provide targeted support for hundreds of projects for more than 15 years.

Growing populations and increasing awareness of environmental issues, coupled with limited financial and natural resources, mean that it is imperative that both present and future infrastructure is taken into consideration. In this way, we can help our public sector clients to create and deliver their services in a way that will stand up to public scrutiny.

“Waterman have brought extra skills and expertise to designing and delivering our ambitious programme within very tight timeframes and to a restricted budget, they have been a pleasure to work with.”

London Borough of Bexley Framework

This three-year framework is part of our long-standing partnership with the London Borough of Bexley which is helping to support economic, environmental and social regeneration. The Borough is committed to strengthening the area’s reputation as a desirable location to live and do business, with plans to expand its transport infrastructure and education programmes, whilst encouraging high aspirations and entrepreneurship.

Our infrastructure and environment team has been working with Bexley since 1996 and were previously awarded four successive framework contracts covering a wide range of civil engineering, transportation and urban design services, as well as enabling project-specific support by our specialist secondments services division.

Throughout this time, our team has successfully delivered a range of significant projects in Bexley, including public realm improvements at Abbey Wood Station, Bexleyheath Town Centre revitalisation, new cycle routes and a number of highway enhancements.

Through this latest NEC3 framework, our team will continue to support the Borough by providing a whole host of specialist surveys, advice and designs. This includes feasibility, design, NEC contract documentation, site supervision, traffic and transportation schemes, transport planning, road safety, public realm, active travel and cycleways, bus priority, highway drainage and flood relief schemes and sustainable drainage systems (SUDS), road safety audits, bridge inspection, management and design, development control, transport assessments, flood risk assessments, CDM, secondments, street lighting design, business case preparation, environmental surveys and strategy, geotechnical design and advice, stakeholder engagement and public consultations, site supervision and cost control.
