About Cain Bio-Engineering

Established by Simon Cain in 1984

When the Water Authority dredged several miles of pristine chalk stream habitat on Wiltshire’s River Ebble in 1984, Simon Cain put aside his fishing rod and set about trying to rectify the damage. During the ensuing period Cain Bio-Engineering was founded and Simon apprenticed himself to the complex study of chalk stream restoration and environmental river engineering.

28 years later Simon and his core team of specialists enjoy an enviable track record as one of the most prolific and successful river restoration teams in the UK today with a reputation for cutting-edge design and project implementation across a wide variety of restoration and erosion control projects.

With ever-increasing pressures on our riverine environments Cain Bio Engineering continues to evolve in response to widespread demands for viable alternatives to traditional hard engineered solutions.
