Natural Resources Wales has appointed Walters to its £65m Next Generation Framework tasked to deliver a range of capital projects, from flood risk management to major infrastructure works in Wales’ forests over the next four years.
NRW has created the Framework to help it achieve its objectives for the people and communities of Wales and the Welsh environment. This includes reducing flood risk, managing Wales’ natural resources (including land and water), sustainably championing the Welsh environment and improving the resilience and quality of our ecosystems.
Walters are one of two contractors appointed to cover South Wales following a detailed quality led procurement process.
Gavin Jones, NRW’s Design Consultancy Framework Manager said: “We’re excited to enter into a new chapter of delivering challenging but rewarding projects across Wales with our new Next Generation Framework partners. Wales’ Green Recovery Plan for Covid-19 will be at the heart of the framework as we deliver important work for Wales’ communities and environments.”
Kevin Llewellyn, Walters Framework Manager said: “We look forward to continuing to work with our long-standing client NRW and their partners as we deliver projects across South Wales that protect communities and improve the environment. We share NRW’s passion for collaboration and the sustainable management of natural resources and are delighted to be able to continue our work together for another four years.”
