Galliford Try has been appointed by Southern Water as delivery partner for two of its design and build water frameworks
Starting in 2020 and running for five years, they have a total value of £425m and Galliford Try’s share of the business is anticipated to be worth approximately £240m. The value of the contract is subject to the final determination of Southern Water’s business plan from Ofwat.
The water frameworks cover capital investment schemes such as wastewater treatment works, upgrades in the western region in joint venture with Black & Veatch, as well as network schemes including pipelines and pumping stations in both the western and eastern regions in joint venture with Morrison Utility Services.
Galliford Try has also been appointed to Yorkshire Water’s AMP7 frameworks. The total value of the water frameworks is £1bn and Galliford Try expects to secure about £100m of work over the five-year term. There is scope for a three-year extension. Working with design partner GHD, Galliford Try has been allocated to the ‘complex civils’ framework covering the design, build and refurbishment of clean and wastewater treatment assets, reservoirs and pumping stations.
Graham Prothero, chief executive of Galliford Try plc, commented: “The Water sector is a key strategic focus for our construction business as set out in our recent results.
“We are delighted to have been appointed to these frameworks having established an excellent relationship with Southern Water and Yorkshire Water over previous AMPs. We look forward to working with them to improve the service they provide to their customers.”
