A joint venture between Galliford Try, Costain and Atkins has been awarded an extension to its AMP4 framework with United Utilities in the north-west of England to cover the five-year AMP5 period starting in April 2010.
The total value of the framework to the GCA joint venture is £400M.
The nature of the work is to implement United Utilities’ non-infrastructure capital delivery programme in its southern area. The majority of projects are likely to be improvements to both clean and waste water processing plants, as was the case in AMP4.
Greg Fitzgerald, chief executive of Galliford Try, commented: “We are delighted to extend our long-standing relationship with United Utilities as one of its joint venture partners delivering improvements to the water infrastructure for its customers.
“With the renewal process for AMP contracts now underway across the water industry, this appointment reinforces our position as one of the sector’s leading contractors.”
