Pick Everard wins Wessex Water security job

Engineering and architectural practice Pick Everard is working with Wessex Water to upgrade security at its sites in line with new government requirements.
The upgrade work will involve the installation of a range of improvements to ensure that all existing security measures meet new standards to protect assets. Rod Burton, partner at Pick Everard commented: 'From what we've seen, Wessex Water takes security very seriously and has worked closely with government agencies in the past to ensure it maintains a high level of protection at its assets and sites. In recent months, the government has raised the standards and formally detailed even higher levels of security for important assets such as these.' Wessex Water is the regional water and sewage treatment business serving an area of the south west of England covering 10,000 square kilometres including Dorset, Somerset, Bristol, most of Wiltshire and parts of Gloucestershire and Hampshire. It treats and supplies drinking water to 1.2 million people and provides sewerage services to about 2.5 million. YTL Power International of Kuala Lumpur acquired Wessex Water in May 2002.
