In 2016, RPS was appointed to deliver Scottish Water’s technical consultancy framework through our Atkins & RPS Consultancy (ARC) joint venture. The ARC joint venture brings together a significant number of experienced staff across the UK in dedicated offices and is now delivering a range of clean and wastewater projects for Scottish Water in support of their Q&SIV Capital Investment Programme. These studies are focused around flood risk management, environmental studies, sewer flooding modelling, and pollution impact studies.
Using our core hydraulic modelling skills, we are improving the understanding of sewerage network performance and associated catchment risks. In turn, this is enabling us to develop evidence based investment strategies that meet the needs of Scottish Water to help them meet their regulatory outputs, but also serve their customers and communities.
