Thames Water seeks ECI model for major treatment works upgrade

Water company Thames Water is seeking early contractor involvement (ECI) for a major new scheme to upgrade its Deephams sewage works in Enfield, north London.

The works will need to be rebuilt, and potentially relocated, to improve water quality in the River Lee and keep up with forecast population growth.

The firm has decided to engage with the supply chain at the earliest opportunity to help inform its decision on the best design and build option. A combination of factors — including a need to complete the around £270M scheme by March 2017, and potentialy negotiate an already congested site — led to the decision to pursue ECI, Thames Water capital delivery director Lawrence Gosden told NCE.

The firm will be holding a supplier day later this month to begin the engagement with industry.
