SME announces five year plan to lead it to carbon net zero
Leading wet civil engineering firm Land & Water Group has announced a new five year plan that will not only support it on its carbon net zero journey but will futureproof the UK SME as it continues to grow and thrive as a responsible and sustainable business.
From next month, Land & Water Group will be operating a new Board structure to strengthen it for future growth. This includes welcoming Kevin Kirkland to the Group Board as Managing Director for Land & Water Services, after having been Construction Director for the past five years.
Over the next five years, Land & Water will continue to innovate and collaborate, strengthening its position as a leader within the construction sector and ensuring its people are at the core of its success.
Having just experienced its best year to date with sales close to £48 million, in the next 12 months Land & Water will be adding two new business arms including entering into a recycled aggregates business and Earth Change Ltd, a joint venture between Land & Water and LC Energy Ltd.
Adrian Gascoyne, Group Commercial Director, says, “this is an incredibly exciting time for Land & Water and myself personally. The changes to the Board ensure we are securing the Groups future for years to come.”
Adrian will also be acting as Project Sponsor for Land & Water’s Kings Bromley Development which is a brand new office space and yard for all Group employees dedicated to each arm of the business. The vision for the site, which is currently under construction, is to meet sustainability goals for the future in terms of energy, site use, and carbon footprint.
Tom Melhuish, Director of Land & Water Remediation comments, “I am extremely excited by the opportunities developing for both Land & Water Remediation and the Group as a whole.
“The work we undertake, creating new habitats, re-using and recycling materials and using water as an alternative means of transporting materials have sprung into relevance over the past couple of years and we are well positioned for the future. We have some very exciting projects in the pipeline and I am really looking forward to being a part of them.”
After having invested in a new regional hub in Newcastle upon Tyne, Land & Water secured a multi-million pound infrastructure contract with PD Ports to upgrade Teesport Ro-Ro Number Two. It has also just completed fish pass construction works on one of the largest river restoration projects of its kind in Europe.
The engineering firm has also opened its brand new 250 berth Shakespeare Marina in Stratford-upon-Avon, which marks its sixth marina constructed and developed alongside Geomac Ltd.
Kevin Kirkland, managing director of Land & Water Services says, “I am delighted to be taking on my new role as Managing Director, over the past few years we have positioned ourselves as a leading dredging, wet civils and environmental contractor.”
