United Utilities has awarded contracts for construction delivery partners on its £1.5Bn AMP 6 investment programme to four consortia.

Jacobs has also been awarded the role of Engineering Services Partner, which will involve providing engineering consultancy across the entire framework. The winning consortia are MMB (Mott MacDonald Bentley), C2V+ (CH2M Hill and VolkerStevin), Advance (Balfour Beatty and MWH) and LIMA (Laing O’Rourke and Imtech supported by Atkins).

Work awarded under the framework will vary between £120 million and £370 million a year and the agreement could be extended beyond the AMP 6 regulatory period up to 2016, which would give each of the four delivery partners some £750 million of water construction work.

The framework will involve the partners in a multidisciplinary range of projects across clean and waste water including design, project management, construction, testing, commissioning and maintenance.

United Utilities Managing Director Steven Fraser said the awards were the result of a lengthy, robust and rigorous selection process.  He added: “We’re confident that these are the right partners to help deliver real improvements for our customers and the environment during AMP6 and beyond.”
Laing O’Rourke managing director of Infrastructure, Gary Wells said: ‘We’re delighted to be forming a new relationship with United Utilities under the LiMA partnership, as a construction delivery partner of the AMP6 framework.’
