“Our combined teams will provide creative solutions, leading edge analysis, and proven value for our clients across a wide range of industries.”
Working across both private and public sector clients for the past two decades, ESI has worked on projects in the water resources, transport and infrastructure, minerals and waste, and property industries. Including the development of a groundwater model to assess effects on groundwater of Sirius Minerals’ Woodsmith Potash Mine.
The fim has also worked on the £1.5bn Highways England project to upgrade 21 miles of the A14 between Cambridge and Huntingdon, where they developed a groundwater flow model of the shallow groundwater system to assess the effect on key receptors of dewatering using the proposed borrow pit and recharge lagoon system.
ESI managing director Jon Cooke added: “Just like Stantec, we have a commitment to the communities we serve throughout the UK and we look forward to connecting to a larger network of technical support to expand our reach throughout the region and beyond.”
