Trio bag £560M water deal

A consortium of three major civils firms has secured £560M of work from Scottish Water.

ESD – made up of Galliford Try, MWH Treatment and Black and Veatch – was appointed to the third of four major deals covering the utility giant’s forthcoming investment period.

The consortium will oversee delivery of projects on reservoirs, water treatment works and pumping stations from 2015 to 2021.

As part of the agreement, ESD will take on 45 apprentices and 30 graduates as well as facilitating 100 educational visits.

Scottish Water chief executive Douglas Millican said: “This is our third alliance appointment, and the benefits for communities across Scotland will be felt through all these partnerships.

“As well as being good news for the economy, our investment programme will enable us to build on improvements to customer service around Scotland, while protecting and enhancing the environment.”

Caledonia Water Alliance, a partnership of Morrison Utility Services and Aecom, is Scottish Water’s water infrastructure alliance partner.

ABV Alliance, a consortium of Amey and Black and Veatch, is its waste water infrastructure alliance partner.

Rural framework partners will be announced later this spring.
