The Cambridge Water Company is a water supply utility company serving Cambridge and the surrounding area. It was established by The Cambridge University and Town Waterworks Act, 1853 and was privately owned until it became a Public Limited Company in 1996. The Cambridge Water Company is a water supply company and does not provide wastewater services.
Cambridge Water supplies high-quality drinking water to approximately 300,000 customers, from the Cambridge area, extending to Ramsey in the north, Gamlingay in the west, Balsham in the east and Melbourn in the south. The Company consistently achieves its twin objectives of delivering high levels of customer service and low charges. Household customers have some of the lowest bills in England and Wales, while benefiting from the highest levels of customer service, as measured by the regulator Ofwat.
During refurbishment in 2004, The landscape design called for pleached trees, shrub planting and an area of low growing evergreen plants softened using grasses and bespoke rill water and central bridge to reflect and help cool down the south facing aspect of the offices.
Landscape design is the process by which we shape our environment to create places to live, work, experience, share, play and travel through. Experts in this discipline, Kym Valley Gardens has experience in every aspect of landscape design, from the original conception of ideas, through to planting, implementation and landscape management.
With each project we aim to meet the client's particular requirements and needs, we have proven our expertise across East Anglia, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire. Using our expertise we create landscapes that enhance any site and the experiences of those using it. Working closely with architects, main contractors and the client we combine award-winning creativity with technical knowledge to devise cost-effective, and sustainable schemes in landscape design.
