Environments we operate in

Our network

Our diverse network of environments includes areas of outstanding natural beauty in the Cotswolds to Europe’s largest water treatment plant at Beckton.

Our Project Engineers manage multiple critical engineering projects while our Environmental engineers ensure we’re protecting our environment. Everyone has a crucial role to play in helping us to deliver life’s essential service.
