A joint venture of three major civils firms Galliford Try, MWH Treatment and Black & Veatch - has been named preferred bidder by Scottish Water on their £560m non-infrastructure Quality and Standards IV framework.

 

The appointment of the joint venture, which is called ESD (Efficient Service Delivery), will see the delivery of various design and build and upgrade projects for the client’s water and wastewater treatment programme, focussing on reservoirs, water treatment works and pumping stations between 2015 to 2021.

Tony Collins, ESD’s Chief Operating Officer, commented: “ESD stands for efficient service delivery, which is what this joint venture is all about. Through collaborative working ESD will make a significant contribution to the environment and wellbeing of communities across Scotland whilst also delivering a capital programme for Scottish Water which provides significant financial efficiencies.”

“As well as being good for the economy, our investment programme will enable us to build on improvements to customer service around Scotland, while protecting and enhancing the environment. Appointing ESD to the programme will help ensure our customers continue to receive fresh drinking water and have their wastewater treated to the highest standard, while benefitting from one of the best value water utilities in the UK.”

 

Greg Fitzgerald, Executive Chairman at Galliford Try, said: “We are delighted to have secured such a substantial amount of long-term business in a key sector for us. We look forward to building on our relationship with Scottish Water and bringing the benefit of our experience of collaboration across the UK water sector to Scottish Water and its customers.”
