Thames Water is searching for contractors to carry out reinstatement work worth £258M across London and parts of the South East.
Three lots covering reinstatement work across north London, south London and Thames Valley have been put up for tender by the utility firm. The reinstatement work involves repairing road surfaces after an excavation to fit or maintain a Thames Water asset.
Thames Water completes 150,000 reinstatements costing £30M per year, including avoidable streetwork fines. A primary supplier will be put in place for each region, along with a reserve supplier.
The contract runs for a minimum of three years but could range to eight, which would extend work into AMP7. Around 40% of reinstatements take place in north London: the value for this lot is £104M.
Lot 2 is worth £88M and covers south London, where 34% of reinstatement work takes place. Lot 3 covers Thames Valley, which sees 26% of the company’s reinstatement work, and is worth £66.4M.
Interested parties should complete a pre-qualification questionniare by the end of the month.
