Ebsford offer specialist contracting services for projects in/on/near water, where risks are greater in number and impact. Difficult access, sensitive environments and elevated health and safety risks, to name only a few factors, are safely controlled by our experienced team of specialists.

River restoration schemes can vary greatly in design and implementation. Ebsford have an understanding of both the wider drivers in terms of the EU Water Framework Directive and Biodiversity Action Plans as well as the site specific issues that make a restoration scheme unique and ultimately successful.

Rapidly changing water levels due to flash floods or tidal regimes are just some of the major risks faced in such works that Ebsford are experienced in controlling.

From de-silting and bank revetment, to restoring meanders in rivers, Ebsford are well placed to undertake the works with precision and sensitivity to the environment.

Environmentally sensitive de-silting is a particular specialty for Ebsford. We use the latest extraction technologies to reach the problem areas and remove deposits with the lowest possible impact on the environment.
