members to the different arms of its business as it experiences a record period of

highlighted the Government’s commitment towards skills training and the creation of
more jobs. Land & Water is proud to be part of this movement whilst developing roles
to allow for career progression after the pandemic.

environments. Andy is also integral in upkeeping construction safety and value across
the company as well as establishing and maintaining partnership relationships.

The Group has also recently hired HSQE Manager Ana Anes, Estimator Luke Martin

construction industry maintaining and improving health and safety, quality and
environmental performance. Luke has worked on a variety of specialist marine
projects from port expansions and sea defense structures to flood alleviation schemes
and urban regenerations whilst Tim brings with him over 12 years’ industry
experience.

James Maclean, CEO of Land & Water said: “During what has been such a challenging
year, we are delighted to be expanding our team to bring on innovative and forward-
thinking new members that can strengthen our expertise when it comes to
maintaining and enhancing the UK’s waterways.

“As we look forward to continued growth as we come out of the pandemic, we are
committed to creating new job opportunities whilst looking to close the skills gap and
provide much needed job security.”

In addition to welcoming new team members, Land & Water has also been working on
some monumental projects including undertaking essential works to the Grand
Cascade Apron at Blenheim Palace as well as supporting the Thames Tideway Tunnel
project. The wet civil engineering firm has also been constructing fish passes at the
‘Unlocking the Severn’ fish pass site at Holt Weir, on the River Severn, allowing
migratory fish to travel to their natural spawning grounds as part of the largest river
restoration of its kind.

James continues, “Over the past 12 months we have been incredibly fortunate to have
had a healthy order book and to witness a period of growth. We are now very much
looking forward to the year ahead as we continue to hire new people and work on
iconic projects across the country.”

Land & Water uses its expertise to futureproof waterways across the UK to improve
their ecological status and restore the navigable body of water for environmental
purposes.
