Six companies have been named to share up to £9bn of work under a mega-framework for Anglian Water.
The utility firm announced the contractors for the first of four alliances it will use to deliver capital works over the next 15 years.
Balfour Beatty and Barhale made the Integrated Main Works Capital Alliance, which will begin next year and be reviewed every five years.
Grontmij and MMB – a joint venture of Mott MacDonald and JN Bentley – were also successful.
MWH and Skanska complete the alliance, which will deliver about half of the company’s total investment programme.
Black and Veatch has been signed as reserve partner.
Anglian Water asset management director Chris Newsome said: “We’re committed to investing to combat the challenges our region faces, dealing with a changing climate and a growing population.
“These investments also support economic recovery and regional growth, delivered in a sustainable way that will benefit the whole of the region Anglian Water serves.”
