Water is a very precious resource and we have to manage it well. However, over the past few years we have seen both shortages and excesses of water which in both instances has created significant operational pressure for water authorities.

For a number of years, Dyer & Butler has been providing a focused waste and clean water civil engineering service across England and Wales, including storm and foul water drainage systems through to reservoirs and pumping stations. We work for utility companies, authorities and private organisations under a wide range of contractual agreements.

Our experienced project team work in urban, rural and coastal locations to assist with food protection, flood prevention, flood alleviation projects and storm water run-off solutions covering SuDS (Sustainable Drainage Systems). At all times our engineering teams take a sensitive and considered approach to ensure the protection of the ecology and environment is at the forefront of our work.

When working in a public environment or a place of local interest, we always engage with local communities, before and during, keeping them informed of our work and progress throughout the project, and by minimising disruption to the community and the environment as a result of our work.

Our work in the water sector includes framework agreements, term contracts, partnered alliance and project work.

  • Construction of storm water and foul water sewers
