Murphy Pipelines has scooped a £35 million contract to carry out improvement works in north London for Thames Water.
The firm, a division of J Murphy & Son, will be responsible for the civil, mechanical and electrical design of the Deephams STW Inlet Works Improvements scheme.
It will also build a pumping station and two reinforced concrete storm tanks, each 5600 cu m in size, as well as carrying out other works.
The project is scheduled to begin in May, with completion in December 2012.
Murphy Pipelines contracts manager Gavin Symonds said: “This is a major project win for Murphy in a sector previously dominated by framework process contractors.”
