Askam Civil Engineering was founded on water based civil engineering projects. As time went on the work broadened to the diversity we enjoy today. Clients include United Utilities (North West Water), British Waterways and The Environment Agency. Our specialism is work on Service Reservoirs, few companies will tackle this kind of work which demands a very high control of work methods to avoid contamination of the drinking water which is fed direct into the domestic system.
