Are you ready to start work on a brand-new project? You might want to consult our specialists first.

With early contractor involvement, our team can make your construction project feel seamless. We’re able to work with you ahead of the project launch, offering expert advice on design processes, buildability, consenting and budget construction costs. We’re proud to have provided ECI on significant projects across the UK, and have worked with clients such as Southern Water, the Environment Agency and Fishtek Consulting – not only are Five Rivers a one-stop shop for your project needs, but we’re one of the top environmental specialists to work with in the whole of the UK.

Coming to us early will save you money during construction: in most cases, we are able to offer cost-effective environmental improvements which utilise site-won materials. As well as reducing costs, this allows us to limit the carbon footprint of your project, making us an ideal choice for the environment and for your budget. We can also support you with ecology surveys, design and construction, should you require it.

Since 1996, we have delivered more river and wetland restoration projects than anyone else in the UK – this puts us in a unique position to be able to share our knowledge with your project team. Our services are offered at either a fixed or hourly rate, giving our clients maximum flexibility.

Working out the feasibility of your project can be complicated.
