Northumbrian Water appoints Stantec for AMP8 period

Stantec will provide a range of technical enabling, solution delivery and design services to support Northumbrian Water in achieving its vision to be the leading provider of sustainable water and wastewater services. The partnership will influence capital investment in both infrastructure and non-infrastructure projects and programmes for the Northumbrian Water, Essex & Suffolk Water Operating Areas.


Stantec has worked alongside Northumbrian Water, which provides water and sewerage services to just under 4.4 million people, for more than 30 years. The company is currently a partner on its AMP7 Technical Consultancy Framework. The AMP8 strategic partnership will run for 4 years, starting 1st April 2023, with an option to extend for a further 4 years. Stantec will work with Northumbrian Water’s other technical, commercial and construction partners as part of the wider AMP8 delivery team.


Throughout the AMP8 period, Stantec will use its local expertise and global presence to support Northumbrian Water in realising its efficiency, net zero carbon and nature-based solution ambitions while working within its regulatory obligations and meeting its social value goals. 


Scott Jackson, Stantec’s UK&I Regional Business Lead, Water, said: “This signifies another great win at the start of our AMP8 campaign. Increasing the long-term reliability and resilience of our water and wastewater networks while lowering costs for domestic and business customers is key to ensuring sustainable development within communities. 


“I look forward to Stantec supporting Northumbrian Water’s vision and delivery of its capital programmes throughout AMP8, using our detailed technical understanding of the UK water sector paired with cutting-edge thinking from around the world.”


Maire Lenihan, Stantec’s UK&I Operations Director, will be working as the Framework Manager throughout the partnership. She added: “We are proud to keep strengthening our successful working relationship with Northumbrian Water. At Stantec, we have always been passionate about supporting our water sector to improve efficiency throughout its networks, while building resilience against tomorrow’s challenges. We are looking forward to a new period of collaboration with Northumbrian Water and our framework partners.”


Monisha Gower, Assets Director, Northumbrian Water said: “We want to really challenge ourselves as we look to the future of our capital plan and processes, recognising the need to evolve how we do business to deliver the best possible value for our customers in these challenging times. We also see a huge opportunity for greater sustainability and reduced carbon in our asset base by looking at our business through a TOTEX lens.


“While we have already made steps towards these goals, the appointment of our strategic and commercial partners brings expertise and experience to the table, and will really help shape the future of our asset management, investment planning and delivery. We look forward to working with them to co-create this exciting future.”
