In 2018, VBA, a joint venture comprising VolkerStevin, Boskalis Westminster and SNC-Lavalin’s Atkins business, started design and build work on the Environment Agency’s £30million flood defence scheme in Mytholmroyd, West Yorkshire.

The Calder Valley scheme will protect up to 400 homes and businesses from flooding and sustain economic growth.

The scheme will provide improved protection to the area around Mytholmroyd Church, Cragg Brook, Greenhills Industrial Estate, Caldene Bridge and up-stream to Hawks Clough Bridge.

Visitors will have the opportunity to learn more about the flood alliviation scheme, the benefits and the constraints, plus the positive effect this work will have on protecting the community from flooding. Alongside this, visitors will hear from construction and engineering professionals about health and safety on site, environmental considerations and sustainable methods of working.
