Galliford Try’s Environment team has successfully secured a place on three lots on the Northumbrian Water’s AMP7 framework contract for construction and engineering works on its water and wastewater assets worth in excess of £10m to the business over the lifecycle of the framework.

The works relate to both its Northumbrian Water Operating Area and the Essex and Suffolk Water Operating Area and represents a first for Galliford Try with Northumbrian Water, as the business continues to strategically target water asset delivery. The work will be carried out over a four-year period covering capital works for infrastructure and non-infrastructure projects and treatment assets such as sewer flooding schemes, strategic water mains, sewer refurb and rehabilitation, water, sewage, and sludge treatment facilities, pumping stations, boreholes and service reservoirs.

Steve Slessor, Managing Director for Galliford Try’s Environment business, commented: “We are delighted that key new client Northumbrian Water has entrusted us to support the delivery of its capital programme and look forward to working with the team to efficiently deliver the facilities that the people of the region deserve.

"This is the latest in another set of strategic wins, and another significant breakthrough for Environment, as we continually look to build on our capability of infrastructure and non-infrastructure water asset delivery. We hope that the expertise and collaborative approach we demonstrate through this work will place us in a good position to build strong long-term relationships.”

Projects released via the frameworks will be competitively tendered and the schemes will generally be between £500,000 to £10m.

The award closely follows Galliford Try’s appointment to Scottish Water’s new Non-Infrastructure Framework for the SR21-27 investment programme, valued at £700m over a six-year timeframe.
