Anglian Water has revealed the final set of framework partners to supply £200m worth of work as part of its £9bn supply chain.
Five companies will form the integrated maintenance and repair alliance, one of four that Anglian Water has established along with its integrated main works capital, integrated metering and developer services and integrated operational solutions alliances, representing almost £2bn of the company’s investment programme during AMP6.
In February, Construction News revealed the winners of the main alliance, worth up to £3bn, for capital projects.
The IMR alliance is divided into two specialist areas, covering water and water recycling projects.
This will include carrying out around 40,000 jobs a year such as repairing burst mains, finding and fixing leaks and replacing lead pipes.
The contract is expected to be worth around £140m between 2015 and 2020.
Anglian Water has also announced four preferred bidders for its water recycling maintenance work, which includes fixing collapsed sewers and replacing damaged manholes. This section of work is expected to be worth over £60m.
The four bidders - Clancy Docwra, Claret Civil Engineering, Danaher & Walsh and Public Sewer Services – will spend the next three months working on a joint business plan before signing contracts to form the final part of the IMR alliance, completing around 7,500 water recycling jobs every year.
The IMR winners will work with Anglian Water in a collaborative commercial model, sharing risk and reward.
Contracts may run for 15 years, with a review after each five-year AMP period. This is one of the longest collaborations in the industry, and means these contracts could deliver around £600m of investment over 15 years.
Anglian Water head of capital delivery and supply chain management Jason Tucker said: “Four alliances will collectively deliver every kind of work for Anglian Water, ranging from building large new water treatment works to repairing small leaks and connecting new properties to the network.
“The supply chain contracts begin next year and are expected to run until 2030, with a review every five years. We now look forward to running additional procurement processes to appoint our many tier two partners to service our four alliances.”
