WYG has been appointed on a four year framework providing independent environmental technical advisory services to Translink and Belfast City Council with an anticipated spend of up to £900k from May 2016.
WYG will work at a strategic management level across all Divisions of the Contracting Authorities, delivering clear, impartial, pragmatic and strategic advice designed to manage potential statutory and developmental environmental liabilities.
The scope of the framework will include controlling and minimising the costs of managing known or suspected environmental and waste liabilities, and supporting the Contracting Authorities’ commitment to sustainability principles during the management of their environmental and waste liabilities.
Michael Boyd, Environment Director, WYG, said: “We are delighted to have been awarded this framework. This is one of the most significant environmental frameworks in Northern Ireland working at a strategic management level with two of the major public sector organisations in the country. We look forward to working closely with Translink and Belfast City Council to impart best practice management and strategies that will make a positive impact on environmental sustainability in Northern Ireland.”
Andy Bate of Translink stated: "Translink take their sustainable and environmental responsibilities for all aspects of their business seriously and by appointing WYG as environmental advisors we look forward to minimising any potential impacts to the environment through sound principles and best practice."
It is expected that this appointment will contribute to the further expansion of the WYG’s environmental consultancy in Belfast, which currently employs a 20-strong local workforce. This local team is supported by a further 200 environmental professionals across the rest of the UK, and 1,300 specialists in other key disciplines including Planning, Transport, Engineering, Management Services, Asset Management as well as Urban and Landscape Design.
