Scottish water seeks partners for £625 million framework

Scottish water seeks partners

Scottish Water has started prequalification for Tier 1 contractors to deliver a civil engineering and mechanical and electrical framework agreement that could be worth around £625 million over 12 years.

 

Work will start on site next year for Scottish Water Managed Delivery, the company’s in house delivery arm, securing hundreds of construction related jobs.  Scottish Water says it will appoint a maximum of two contractors for each of two Lots, one for civils and the other for M&E, and it will invite bids from between five and eight contractors for each of the two Lots.

 

The initial agreement will cover the six years of the regulatory programme starting in 2015, but the agreement could be extended into a second regulatory period.

 

Lot 1 will cover civil engineering across water and waste water infrastructure, including construction projects on Scottish Water assets, network main replacement and rehabilitation; pipe bursting, slip-lining and mains-laying and minor mechanical and electrical work

 

Lot 2 is for mechanical and electrical across water and waste water Infrastructure, and non Infrastructure, including maintenance projects, refurbishment and extensions to pumping stations, minor civil construction works and minor works at service reservoirs.

 

The contractors must be able to work across Scotland and Scottish Water can award contracts on a geographical basis if it chooses, but The Western, Shetland and Orkney islands are excluded.

 

Scottish Water has already appointed alliance partners to oversee the largest part of its investment over the years to 2021, with Caledonia Water Alliance – a Morrison Utility Services and Aecom partnership - and BBV Alliance – which is Black and Veatch and Byzak - currently working with the company to find Tier 1 contractors.
