Then join us at May’s Business Breakfast and find out more.

The agenda will include an introduction to the largest single tunnelling contract awarded by Wessex Water and GENeco’s work at the heart of Bristol’s emerging circular economy.

Book your ticket now

Wessex Water is nearing design completion of its £55 million North Bristol relief sewer project, which will see a 5km tunnel pass beneath the M5 motorway, Cribbs Causeway and Network Rail’s Henbury loop.Work is due to start in September 2019 and is expected to take approximately two and a half years to complete, ensuring the sewerage network can cope with ongoing and future development in the north of the city and South Gloucestershire.

The relief sewer will be built using a Tunnel Boring Machine launched from Lawrence Weston, passing below Henbury and continuing to Bristol Golf Club.

GENeco treats huge volumes of varied waste from the city and transforms it into useful products. This includes the food waste recycling from all of Bristol’s residents and sewage sludge from over 1 million people. GENeco also helps around 300 regional customers an alternative disposal route to landfill for the disposal of difficult to treat waste.

From this waste, GENeco produces enough renewably-sourced energy to power over 10,000 homes in the Bristol area, and heavily reduces the environmental impact of local businesses and the community. The by-product of its recycling processes is a nutrient-rich biofertiliser which is used on farms in the region, keeping valuable bio-resources in the local area.

Come along, join the discussion, and find out more.

About Flexology
Kristal and her business partner have a background in Senior Management roles in Business. When looking for a new challenge they realised there’s a huge lack of options for those that want flexibility, with less than 1 in 10 roles advertised in this way. The research they completed showed a huge demand for flexible working from candidates, therefore they launched Flexology. They help clients close their skill and talent gaps, finding talented professionals, who are looked for full and part time roles, offered with flexibility.
