Restoring, protecting and stabilizing the banks of rivers and coastlines against scouring, flooding and erosion, is an essential measure to mitigate against the effects of climate change.
We undertake and oversee a wide variety of restoration projects up and down the UK. Our team of geotechnical engineers seek out best practises to reverse degradation, increase biodiversity and achieve results that have a positive effect on our rivers and catchments.
River restoration and coastline repair also requires a unilateral focus that ties into improving the quality of surrounding land, water and air and with a focus on habitat and species protection. We understand the benefits in local communities, society and the economy when rivers, coastlines and catchments in both rural and urban landscapes are healthy.
We are excited to work in partnership to build solutions that local communities can benefit from. With a high demand in improving natural environments, here is a list of some of the work we have undertaken:
Newport County Council chose Flex MSE to repair a failing wall, replacing an existing embankment. With being so close to the road side the quick install of the system was a massive benefit in reducing road traffic management and costs.
"Spraying the new living wall here at Salterhebble with millions of seeds and planting over 1,200 shrubs, wildflowers and trees is the final stage in creating this new vertical garden that will absorb carbon dioxide, nitrogen dioxide and reduce noise along this stretch of the route." - Cllr Eric Firth, Deputy Chair of the West Yorkshire Combined Authority Transport Committee
