Civil engineering contractor Barhale has secured a place on Northumbrian Water’s AMP5 framework taking its overall order book for AMP5 work to £450 million covering both capital and maintenance works.
Barhale has been selected as one of Northumbrian Water’s AMP 5 framework partners for infrastructure works throughout its operating areas in the North-east, Essex and Suffolk.
