Contractors named on £35M Belfast water framework

ni water

Northern Ireland Water has awarded three contractors places a £35M framework for works on a water treatment plant in Belfast.

BSG Civil Engineering, Graham and Geda Construction were the successful tenderers for the rehabilitation framework for service reservoirs and trunk mains.

The framework covers the current PC15 investment period which runs from April 2015 to March 2021. Northern Ireland Water received six bids for the contract.

The contract is not divided into lots and not related to a project or programmed financed by European Union funds.

BSG Civil Engineering’s principal client in the past has been Northern Ireland Water, however the company has before undertaken multi-million-pound contracts for clients such as the Belfast Harbour Commission, Donegal County Council and DARD.

Graham has been awarded the contract after this month also completing the design and build of Magna Carta Park, a new build student accommodation scheme in Surrey which accommodates almost 500 Royal Holloway University students.

Meanwhile, Geda Construction has before been hired by Northern Ireland Water to install underground Pipes and pumping equipment on its 78-week Hollywood Sewer Network project.

News of the contract award has come after Northern Ireland Water earlier this year opened bidding for places on a £1.68bn water and sewerage framework to support the delivery of the Price Control period (PC21) business plan to run from April 2021 to March 2027. It was also to support the delivery remainder of the proposed investments set out in the current PC15 business plan, which ends 31 March 2021.

That contract was divided into three lots. The first lot, worth up to £240M, is for infrastructure works associated with water treatment and distribution, sewage collection and treatment assets. Lot two was for non-infrastructure works and is also worth up to £240M, while the third lot, for water and sewerage infrastructure and non-infrastructure works, was valued at £1.2bn.
