Integrated Supply Chain of the year

Yorkshire water’s asset unit delivery unit entered by Turner & Townsend

If the Treasury wants an example of how to deliver infrastructure projects efficiently it needs look no further than at the collaboration between Turner & Townsend and Yorkshire Water. The two firms are the brains behind Yorkshire Water’s Asset Delivery Unit, which over the past 15 years has delivered £75.9m of capital efficiencies. The unit brings together 550 people from 12 organisations, but the firms involved say the ethos is for workers to ‘leave their company badges at the door’. The judges were impressed with the “sheer breadth and scale” of the collaboration and said the firms had demonstrated a close relationship “with the longer term objectives from the supply chain”.
