Waterman Infrastructure and Environment (IE) has been appointed to a range of public sector projects and frameworks across England, including a position on the Cheshire East framework to provide environmental and engineering services.
This framework supports the development of the county, providing access to land assets whilst also working with council-owned property development company Engine of the North. One of the latter’s key projects is the development of over 100ha of commercial land and a 100ha garden village, following the completion of the Congleton Bypass.
The team has also achieved success through the Merseytravel framework, having been appointed by Knowsley Council on the Halsnead garden village project. Located on a former colliery site, the project is a combined housing and commercial development extending over 100ha.
The Waterman IE team has also been working alongside AECOM on the Midlands Highways Authority framework and collaborating with Atkins to deliver the West Midlands Highways Authority (WMHA) and Hampshire County Council frameworks.
Meanwhile, in Greater Manchester the Waterman IE has been appointed by MetroLink to undertake asset management services across the region’s extensive tram network. COO for the IE business Neil Humphrey commented: "We’re excited to be involved in transport infrastructure projects in the north west and north east. Merseytravel, and upcoming investment projects such as the Trans-Pennine route upgrade, which will be delivered in partnership with Atkins, enable our local teams to be actively involved in regionally-important strategic projects."
