Thames Water awards Programme Partner framework to support future infrastructure delivery

Thames Water has awarded the Programme Partner framework to support the delivery of its Strategic Resource Options (SRO) Programme.

It is predicted that across London and the Thames Valley, it will need an additional 1 billion litres of water every day for its customers over the next 50 years. Thames said this framework will support the partnership work required to deliver the major infrastructure needed to meet the water scarcity challenges ahead, associated with climate change and a growing population.

As part of this recent procurement exercise, Thames Water sought to work with partners that demonstrated extensive experience in the programme and project management of large complex infrastructure projects in the current UK planning environment.

The Programme Partner Framework has been awarded to three lead entities, as follows:

  • Arcadis Consulting (UK)
  • Jacobs & Mott MacDonald JV
  • Turner & Townsend Project Management

In announcing the successful completion of this framework procurement, Simon Adams, Programme Director for the SROs said:

“Following on from the recent announcement of our Technical Partner Framework, the implementation of the Programme Partner Framework marks another significant step forward for our Strategic Resource Options Programme. Together, these frameworks give us access to the breadth of specialist services required to ensure our projects are delivered efficiently and effectively.”

Mohit Farmah, Head of Procurement and Supply Chain for the SROs added:

”We look forward to working in collaboration with our new partners to deliver this programme of innovative projects, which will protect the environment and secure the future water supply for customers, in the face of population growth and climate change.”
