UCP.2 Binnies - 100 years of Engineering Excellence
22 June 2021 (Tuesday), 7.15pm- 7.30pm SGT (GMT+8)

Co-organiser: Binnies

In 2021 Black and Veatchs’ UK and Asia water businesses were acquired by the RSK Group and the Binnies name was reborn.

Find out how after more than 100 years Binnies is continuing to bring valuable specialist expertise in all areas of the water utility sector including flood and coastal defence planning and design; specialist environmental services; digital and data services; construction management and commissioning; and operations.

We track the history of Binnies from its formation in 1901 by Sir Alexander Binnies, an influential British Civil Engineer who was knighted for his contribution to major engineering projects including the Blackwall Tunnel, Greenwich Foot Tunnel and Vauxhall Bridge. He succeeded Sir Josef Sir Joseph Bazalgette as Chief Engineer of London County Council designing parts of London's drainage system, including the East London Sewage Treatment Works at Crossness and Beckton and He went on to become the president of the Institute of Civil Engineers in 1905.

In the early 1920s Binnies won their first contract in Singapore to build the Gunong Pulai Dam and the first contract in Hong Kong to build the Shing Mun Water Reservoir Scheme was completed in 1939. Binnies continued to grow from strength to strength in the water sector globally and in 1995 was acquired by US based firm Black and Veatch to create their global water division. At the end of 2020, B&Vs’ UK and Asia water businesses were acquired by the RSK Group and the Binnies name was reborn.

Binnies Gary Young, Divisional Director, Scott Aitken, UK & Europe MD, William Yong, Singapore MD and Andy Kwok, Hong Kong MD provide an insight of what what excites them about the future since joining the RSK Group and the people and the culture that makes Binnies world class thought leaders and innovators.
