Environmental consultancy wins utilities contracts

Nick Sanderson, Anthony Mellor and Oliver Ramm

Ilkeston ecology consultancy RammSanderson has been appointed onto a framework of suppliers to Severn Trent Water (STW) and Hafren Dyfrdwy (HD).

The company has also revealed it has had its contract with Western Power Distribution extended.

The STW and HD appointments mean that the company is approved to supply ecological and arboricultural services for up to the next three years as part of the AMP 7 programme.

Director Anthony Mellor, who leads the company’s Stafford office, said: “In light of the recent coronavirus outbreak and its effect on the economy, we are really delighted with this news. As our work takes place outdoors we can comply with social distancing rules; so whilst we can still go on site to carry out surveys for our clients on essential construction projects, this news and the prospect of regular assignments in the future is the kind of stability we need. It will help speed recovery when lock down measures can be lifted.”

He added: “This appointment comes following increased success providing services to the utilities sector. After 12 months supporting Western Power Distribution, our contract with them has also been extended for a further 12 months to assist in delivering their programme of cable diversion works.”
