Construction support services provider Interserve has been selected by Yorkshire Water for the £1bn Mechanical, Electrical, Instrumentation, Control and Automation (MEICA) Frameworks for 2020-2025.

Interserve has won a place on two frameworks with a combined value of £1bn. The two MEICA Frameworks are part of Yorkshire Water’s investment in infrastructure to support its 5.2 million customers.

The Complex MEICA Framework, worth £750m, includes a variety of construction and refurbishment works associated with the assets of the utility’s operational treatment sites. Initially, the Framework will run for five years, with an option for a 36-month extension.

The Minor MEICA Framework is worth £300m and will include work on operational treatment site, and collection or distribution assets such as process treatment and structures retaining water.

Interserve Construction infrastructure managing director Chris Tyerman said: “Having worked with Yorkshire Water for a number of years on previous Frameworks this is another fantastic result for our water business. Interserve Construction works for a range of utility companies in the UK and these contract wins further demonstrate our strong credibility in regulated industries and our successful strategy in accumulating Framework partnerships.

“The team will offer a full range of integrated services to continue to deliver innovative solutions to Yorkshire Water to support them in the delivery outstanding service to their customers whilst adding value to the communities and environment they operate in. This exciting role also broadens Interserve’s presence in the north of England where we already work with Northumbrian Water Group.”

Yorkshire Water programme delivery head Mark Baker said: “This is the second phase of our procurement process and we would like to welcome our MEICA Partners to support our ambitions and challenges into AMP7. The MEICA Framework Partners will join our Civils Partners and Yorkshire Water in developing our Enterprise Delivery Model.

“Through this new model, we’re looking to form a collaborative, innovative and efficient delivery vehicle with a focus on engineering excellence and our carbon targets, utilising a Programme First approach. We are confident that this will ensure we achieve our challenges going into AMP7.”

Yorkshire Water manages water collection, treatment and distribution in Yorkshire, supplying 1.2 billion litres of drinking water each day. It also collects, treats and disposes about 1 billion litres of wastewater safely back into the environment.

In September 2019, Interserve Construction was selected by Yorkshire Water for its Complex and Minor Civil Frameworks. The combined value of the three Frameworks is more than £2bn.
