Yorkshire Water has launched procurement of a £1bn framework of civils and building works.
The water supplier is looking for firms to cover works outside the scope of its two Tier 1 contractors, which will be appointed in April 2019.
The programme of works is split into two main packages.
The first is for complex civils works worth around £750M due to be carried out between 2020 and 2025.
This contract will cover one-off civil construction and refurbishment works including treatment of ground assets, water treatment and installing water retaining structures.
The second lot is for a £290M minor civil and building framework, including construction of structures below 2m in height, and excavation works.
In total, Yorkshire Water is hoping to shortlist six firms for the complex civils works by September and a further eight for minor works.
