Consultant Sweett Group has won its first contract in the water utilities sector, in joint venture with Aqua Consultants.

Sweett Group has been appointed one of three providers on a three year framework for United Utilities, which provides water and wastewater services to nearly 7 million people in the North-west of England. The work will be delivered through Sweett’s offices in Leeds and Manchester.

Derek Pitcher, managing director for Europe and MEAI, said: “Targeting new sectors such as utilities and energy is one of the group’s main growth strategies and I am very pleased to see us developing the kind of sector-specific expertise we are known for across the retail, health and commercial fields.”
