Geo-Environmental has won it’s biggest project of the year so far with Thames Water.
Ed Newman, our Head of Rail Road and Utilities, pictured below left undertaking the initial site walkover on the Thames Water site proposed the creation of a dedicated team in 2016 to provide better focus on these market sectors, in a well constructed plan that he presented to board members.
Spin forward to the present day and the team have grown the Company’s presence in these sectors from 1% of Turnover to 16% of Turnover in the last two and a half years, repaying the confidence that the board had in Ed and his team. The team are well positioned on a number of frameworks and believe that this is the first of many big projects to come.
