We can offer support to waste water, water treatment, pipelines and other water infrastructure projects throughout the development cycle:

  • Project initiation – undertaking baseline surveys and feasibility through our environmental services
  • Consenting stage – providing planning and environmental support to achieve the necessary consents for a development
  • Post-consent – providing pre-construction planning, environmental and engineering support
  • Construction – providing construction related services during the construction phase, ensuring compliance and delivery of commitments
  • Operation – environmental monitoring

Arcus is ideally placed to work on infrastructure projects in the water sector.  Our multi-disciplinary, integrated approach means that our experienced environmental, planning and engineering staff have immediate access to colleagues across a range of disciplines with a strong track record in working on water infrastructure projects, including our CIWEM accredited hydrologists and staff with experience of working at the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency (SEPA) and the Environment Agency (EA).

Our approach:

  • We add efficiency to projects through providing multi-disciplinary support under a single contract and through a single point of contact.
  • We add value to projects by looking for opportunities to reduce costs, signposting potential risks to programme early and by providing solutions rather than problems.
  • We work with our clients to ensure that their projects meet, or exceed all of their environmental commitments and obligations.
