Morgan Est tipped for sewerage


MORGAN Est is negotiating an £11 million deal to extend and upgrade a sewage treatment plant on the edge of York.

The firm looks set to beat MJ Gleeson - snapped up last week by US firm Black & Veatch after a six-month bidding war - to secure the deal at the Naburn Sewage Works for Yorkshire Water Services.

Arup is the consultant civil engineer on the contract, which is set to be awarded officially in the next two weeks.

The Naburn treatment plant has already undergone a substantial upgrade to improve the water pumped back into the River Ouse.

Gleeson carried out a part of the works back in 2001 and had been considered an early favourite to win any further work at the plant.

Morgan Est is expected to start on site this December.
