Severn Trent, a water company based in the UK and constituent of the FTSE 100 Index, has announced details of the first contractors it plans to use to deliver its £2bn investment in its construction projects for the seventh asset management period (AMP7).

The water company, which serves approximately eight million people across the Midlands, has changed the way it intends to carry out the work between 2020 and 2025.

The changes include bringing the design work in-house, including the creation of a new specialist design team, and working with more construction contractors than previously.

The framework has been structured into four defined lots – Capital Delivery Design and Build Frameworks (Lot 1) and three separate Capital Delivery Build Only Frameworks (Lots 2, 3 and 4).

The successful contractors for Lot 1 are: Amey Utility Services; Costain; J Murphy & Sons; Mott MacDonald Bentley; MWH Treatment; nmcn; and VolkerStevin Limited & Atkins Joint Venture.

The contractors for Lot 2 are: Barhale & Doosan Enpure; Coffey Construction; CPC Civils; Forkers; GEDA Construction; JN Bentley; Kier Integrated Services; MWH Treatment; nmcn; and VolkerStevin.

Severn Trent capital delivery and commercial director Helen Miles said: “Getting fast-track status from Ofwat means that we’ve been able to make a really early start on our planning for AMP7.

“We now have 12 months where we can define the key projects we need to deliver for our customers, which we can do alongside our new construction partners.

“We are delighted we now have our partners in place for lots 1 and 2, and this is a really exciting time for us as we look at new, more efficient ways to invest for the future to make our services even better.”

Earlier in March 2019, Severn Trent said that it is commencing work on the next phase of £13.5m investment in Leicestershire to replace ageing water pipes in Wigston.

Amey, a provider of infrastructure support services and Severn Trent’s working partner, is carrying out the work, starting on Bull Head Street. Later, work will be taken up on Leicester Road, Wakes Road and Burgess Road.
