Interserve has cemented its successful working relationship with Yorkshire Water by securing a place on two new frameworks. The firm’s water business has been named on the utility’s Complex MEICA Framework and Minor MEICA Framework, worth a combined value of over £1 billion.
Yorkshire Water manages the collection, treatment and distribution of water in Yorkshire, supplying 1.2bn litres of drinking water each day and collects, treats and disposes of about 1bn litres of waste water safely back into the environment.
The Complex MEICA Framework involves a variety of construction and refurbishment works associated with assets within Yorkshire Water’s operational treatment sites. The Framework will run for an initial five years with a further 36 months extension option.
The Minor MEICA Framework will include a range of work on operational treatment site, collection or distribution of assets including process treatment and water retaining structures.
These contract wins add to Interserve’s recent success in being included on Yorkshire Water’s Complex and Minor Civil Frameworks.
“Having worked with Yorkshire Water for a number of years on previous Frameworks this is another fantastic result for our water business. Interserve Construction works for a range of utility companies in the UK and these contract wins further demonstrate our strong credibility in regulated industries and our successful strategy in accumulating Framework partnerships,” said Chris Tyerman, Infrastructure Managing Director at Interserve Construction.
“The team will offer a full range of integrated services to continue to deliver innovative solutions to Yorkshire Water to support them in the delivery outstanding service to their customers whilst adding value to the communities and environment they operate in. This exciting role also broadens Interserve’s presence in the north of England where we already work with Northumbrian Water Group.”
Yorkshire Water’s Head of Programme Delivery, Mark Baker, commented: “This is the second phase of our procurement process and we would like to welcome our MEICA Partners to support our ambitions and challenges into AMP7. The MEICA Framework Partners will join our Civils Partners and Yorkshire Water in developing our Enterprise Delivery Model.
“Through this new model, we’re looking to form a collaborative, innovative and efficient delivery vehicle with a focus on engineering excellence and our carbon targets, utilising a Programme First approach. We are confident that this will ensure we achieve our challenges going into AMP7.”
