Scottish Water wants bids for £750 million framework

Scottish Water has invited bids for a £750 million framework for the non-infrastructure elements of its 2015-21 capital investment programme.

 

Applicants have until 4 April to register interest and up to six will be selected to tender. The work involves design, planning, management and delivery of non-infrastructure, above ground assets including additions to the asset base during the contract period, renewals, modifications, maintenance and refurbishment.

 

New build refurbishment and maintenance is also included, as is design, civil engineering, process works, mechanical, electrical and telemetry related work. The contract period could be extended beyond the regulatory period into the next period, and work could also start before the formal start of the capital programme in April next year.

 

Scottish Water has already selected two contractor joint venture alliance partners for a £700 million water and wastewater infrastructure investment programme. Morrison Utility Services and Aecom’s partnership, Caledonia Water Alliance, won a contract last month for delivery of some £360 million of water infrastructure investment over a six year investment period from 2015. BBV Alliance, a partnership of Black and Veatch and Amey owned Byzak, will be Scottish Water’s wastewater infrastructure alliance partner responsible for delivering some £340 million of projects.

 

These two alliances cover upgrades, maintenance and new building. Both alliance partners have been working with Scottish Water over the past few weeks to select a group of Tier One contractors to deliver some of the programme. Scottish Water has also held a series of ‘market days’ aimed at identifying local contractors to support the alliances on a capital maintenance programme estimated at £500 million over the six years to 2021.

 

Scottish Water says its business plan will call for some £500 million of investment a year between 2015 and 2021.
