Pell Frischmann is delighted to announce its appointment onto the latest phase of the Rotherham Renaissance Flood Alleviation Scheme, a project that looks to protect the community of Rotherham and its surrounding areas from flooding – with the most recent flooding being experienced in November 2019.
The 2C Canal Barrier scheme is the latest in the sequence of flood defences in the centre of Rotherham. It follows on from Pell Frischmann’s current work on Rotherham Renaissance Flood Alleviation Scheme 2A (RRFAS2A) and wider flood studies in the area, such as Rotherham to Kilnhurst Flood Alleviation Scheme (RKFAS).
Working with sub-consultants KGAL (Barrier design) and Ecus (Landscape Architecture), works for our Flood Risk team will include:
- Outline and detailed design of the barrier and adjacent flood walls;
- Preparation of NEC contract documents;
- Construction contract management; and
- Site supervision from mid 2021 to June 2022.
Mark Duquemin, our Head of Environmental Management & Sustainability said:
“We are pleased to help bring this important structure to life, harnessing the team’s many years of expertise of canal and river navigation engineering to help protect the people living and working in Rotherham”.
As work progresses, Pell Frischmann and client, Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council, continue to follow safeguarding measures to prevent the spread of Covid-19. Pell Frischmann looks forward to working with our client and partners to provide safe and maintainable flood defences.
