Large Wooden Structure Installation & River Restoration
Taking place over three years, we have completed four river improvement projects for Edwin Third of the Dee District Salmon Fisheries Board under the supervision of cbec's Hamish Moir.
From increased biodiversity to improved health and wellbeing, providing access to nature brings a range of benefits to local communities.
With a sustainability mindset, we build low-impact infrastructure that works seamlessly with the natural landscape.
Using our unique blend of environmental and civil engineering expertise, we deliver high-quality green infrastructure that provides access to nature and the associated amenities that help people have an enjoyable outdoor experience.
We construct many types of access routes, including footpaths, boardwalks and forest roads that provide people and vehicles with a sustainable means of access without impacting the environment.
The associated amenities we can build include rural car parks; off-grid facilities such as composting toilets and solar-powered car park meters; fencing; shelters; bridges - basically everything visitors need to feel welcomed. And since these are environmentally-rich areas, we can also put viewing platforms and waymarking signage in place to encourage visitors to learn more about your area and its unique biodiversity.
For your project, we can work with you at any stage, whether creating a design and providing the necessary construction or following an existing plan and providing a construction-only service. Regardless of how we work with you, our aim is to understand your expectations and goals for the site as well as the constraints we need to work within.
We'll always give you our honest opinion on whether we can make improvements to your existing plans to lessen the project's environmental impact. Often this can also result in cost savings, but we will only make these suggestions if they do not compromise the project's safety, quality or sound methodology.
In building your green infrastructure, we aim to bring long-term benefits to your local community without stripping away the beauty and diversity of the natural landscape.
Sustainable flood risk and scour protection management is essential for keeping communities safe and preserving vital structures and natural features.
Restoring a river’s natural state, or changing the channel of a river to slow its flow, can help support biodiversity, improve recreation and minimise flood risk.
How can we support your next project?
Our skilled team has the expertise to complete a range of civil works for different sectors and purposes, while reducing environmental impact.
From concept to reality, we design and construct mountain biking trails and footpaths that are unique to their location and complement the natural landscape.
