About the entity

Flood Control International
Flood Control International designs, supply and install the widest range of flood prevention solutions in the world, together with the full spectrum of associated professional services.

Global flood defence specialist, Flood Control International, has been awarded a contract by MWH Treatment, on behalf of Thames Water Utilities, to deliver flood resilience works to a number of sites, as part of Thames’ Flood Resilience Programme.

The contract, worth in excess of £1.5M, requires Flood Control International to provide protection measures to protect  four sites against a 0.5% probability (1-in-200-year flood risk) fluvial, pluvial or groundwater flood event, including 300mm freeboard allowance for climate change. The solutions include side hinged floodgates, vertically hinged pivot floodgates, slot-in barriers, steel plate walls and other solutions specific to each site, with Flood Control International undertaking site surveys, design calculations, drawings and quality documentation packs, as well as the manufacture of equipment, installation and installation co-ordination.

The sub-contract was awarded following Flood Control International’s completion of  a minor works design-only sub-contract, which enabled options to be considered for final scoping.

Speaking about the contract Tim Collingwood, Managing Director of Flood Control International, said: “This type of ‘quality heavy’ project fits perfectly to our capabilities and is a great all-round example of our team working with the client and contractor to produce solid, dependable flood defences to key sites. These additional sites we’ll be protecting add to the number of projects we’ve already undertaken in the region for the same end client, and we’re delighted to be supporting them on this high-profile project.”
