Mace, the international construction and consultancy company, has secured a role as the Programme Management Office (PMO) delivery partner for Thames Water’s AMP7.
Mace will help deliver the largest ever water sector capital programme, assisting Thames Water with programme management, quality assurance, business systems and processes and governance and risk.
The water company is implementing an intelligent client model with a client-led PMO for AMP7, requiring a progressive build of in-house capabilities in programme and project management.
Thames Water are moving from an alliance model to develop their internal capabilities and have recognised that Mace can support and supplement their team in achieving this.
Mace’s team will also support Thames Water build its PMO capabilities with a comprehensive transition plan, selection and training of PMO personnel and development of PMO policies and practices.
Javid Khaliq, Business Unit Director for Energy & Utilities at Mace, said:
“Mace is delighted to work with Thames Water again, this time on the largest and most complex capital programme that the UK’s water sector has seen. Our Programme Management Office capabilities will help Thames Water successfully transition to an intelligent client model, and we look forward to building this long-term relationship. Mace will combine its international expertise in managing the PMO for global programmes and projects, with its local water sector expertise to help the client in this major transformation journey.”
