Cognition Land and Water has grown organically since its establishment in 2005 by our Managing Director, Richard Hosking. The company began as a specialist Land Remediation Contractor. As a result of growth, client recognition and reputation, we are now able to adapt our offering to our clients requirements and provide tailor made solutions for each project. As one of the most dynamic contractors in the industry, Cognition Land and Water has an outstanding track record for delivering projects on time and on budget. Sustainability and  a Zero Carbon approach are always at the core of our values.

As a forward thinking business, we constantly evaluate new technologies and techniques and our staff training and continued development reflect this. We are able to draw on our in-house knowledge and expertise across all utilised methods, controlling and coordinating the process under a prescribed project management structure.

In October 2021, the shares in Cognition Land and Water was transferred to the EOT (Employee Ownership Trust), providing indirect employee ownership of the company for the benefit of all employees.
