- Kier appointed to Lots 1 and 2 of the Framework, with further 5 Lots to be appointed at a later date
- Both Lots cover the London and Thames Valley area, with Lot 1 providing non-infrastructure works and Lot 2 providing infrastructure works
- This latest appointment underpins Kier’s position as a partner of choice for Thames Water, having worked together on the AMP6 Thames Water Infrastructure Alliance and the upgrade to Deephams Sewage Treatment Works
Kier has been awarded a place on both Lots 1 and 2 of the £2.6bn Thames Water AMP7 Capital Programmes Framework (Runway 2). Both Lots cover North and South London as well as the Thames Valley area and for the AMP7 period, Lot 1 has an estimated overall value of £180m and Lot 2 has an estimated overall value of £170m.
Lot 1 is non-infrastructure works and covers all works above ground such as the refurbishment, replacement and provision of new potable water and wastewater treatment assets, including service and storage reservoirs. Lot 2 is infrastructure works covering all underground works and broadly extends from rehabilitation, replacement and provision of new sewers and pumping assets to potable water pipelines to inspection and maintenance of aqueducts and tunnels.
The framework will have an initial duration of five years, as part of Thames Water’s 2020-2025 AMP7 plans, with the option to extend it for a further five years through to AMP8. Later this year, a further five Lots will be announced as part of this Framework.
Kier will blend its experience within the water market, as well as its ability to deliver major infrastructure projects, to complete works on this framework.
Mark Pengelly, group managing director for Kier Infrastructure, said:
“We are pleased to have been appointed to the Thames Water AMP7 Capital Programmes Framework. AMP7 includes a number of complex projects and significant programmes, of which both our Utilities and Infrastructure teams have the combined capabilities to provide the highest levels of project delivery over the next five years. We look forward to delivering new projects through this framework and enhancing the infrastructure for the communities Thames Water serves.”
Barry McNicholas, group managing director for Kier Utilities & Rail, said:
“We are delighted to continue our successful partnership with Thames Water following our appointment to its AMP7 Capital Programmes Framework.
“Over the last five years, we have delivered a first-class service to Thames Water and the communities it serves. Working collaboratively with our Infrastructure team, over the next five years, we look forward to utilising our skills and experience to deliver vital infrastructure both above and below ground.”
This framework appointment builds on Kier’s relationship with Thames Water. Previously, it had a place on the AMP6 £1bn Thames Water Infrastructure Alliance contract and it has also been involved in the upgrade to Deephams Sewage Works, which now serves a population of around one million customers.
