Amey has been awarded two contracts by Severn Trent Water worth a potential combined £100M.


Under the first contract the firm will install, repair and maintain Severn Trent Water’s water meter network. This deal is for three years with a possible three year extension.


Amey has also been appointed as Severn Trent Water’s design and build partner to provide developer services, including new connections and meters and the design and construction of new water mains.


Amey says it has been working collaboratively with Severn Trent Water for 12 years. It added that these deals will enable it to strengthen its relationship with the water supplier.


Recently the company was also awarded a £190M contract by Severn Trent Water to maintain and refurbish drinking water mains in the English Midlands and in Mid-Wales.


In recent months, Amey has secured contracts with several water companies including Scottish Water, United Utilities and Welsh Water.


Amey chief executive Mel Ewell said: “Securing this and the additional developer services contract is testament to our collaborative working relationship and our track record of delivering high quality, efficient and reliable water engineering services for customers.”


Severn Trent Water director Andy Smith said: “We seek to develop successful long term relationships with all of our supply chain partners and we’re pleased that we can continue to work together as ‘one team’ with Amey.”
