North Midland Construction wins £100M water work

Elan Valley

North Midland Construction (NMC) has taken over from previous contractor Interserve on a £100M water treatment plant scheme in Birmingham.

Interserve and subcontractor Kier left the Frankley water treatment project in April following a disagreement with client Severn Trent over costs for the scheme. Severn Trent had said it still expected to finish the project on time and to budget.

The NMC joint venture with waste treatment firm Doosan Enpure will start on site later this year, with work due to continue for three years. It says the contract, worth more than £100M, will boost its annual results to a higher than expected level.

“This is a fantastic flagship project to be awarded with one of our key customers and is a testament to the specialist capabilities that our group have developed,” said NMC chief executive John Homer.

Frankley water treatment plant is being upgraded as part of the Birmingham Resilience Project, which will provide a second water supply to support the city’s 100-year-old Elan Valley Aqueduct.
