Consultants to provide a range of commercial and cost consultancy services on Severn Trent projects


Turner & Townsend (T&T) and Mace have won a 10-year framework for Severn Trent Water, to support the delivery of over £6bn of capital projects.

The framework covers the remainder of the current AMP5 regulatory period, the five-year AMP6 period and part of AMP7.

The consultants will deliver a range of commercial and cost consultancy services on Severn Trent projects.

For AMP6 this includes implementing more stringent service and environmental standards, as well as driving estate efficiencies to help keeping water bill increases below inflation.

T&T currently works with nine of the UK’s 10 largest water companies.

T&T director and UK Water Sector leader, Jason Jones, said: “Our demonstrable experience helping blue chip clients to achieve sector leading performance puts us in a perfect position to help Severn Trent Water deliver value to their customers.

“Through our programme delivery and performance improvement approaches we support clients to achieve increased levels of efficiency, predictability and effectiveness, contributing to our clients’ corporate aims by driving savings as an alternative to bill increases.

“A number of our clients like Severn Trent have set themselves tough targets for AMP6 - but by a whole life cost and performance focussed approach … using intelligent programme data, we will work with the companies to deliver these targets.”

Mace head of utilities Graham Seage said: “We’re delighted to have been appointed to the new 10 year framework, which cements our relationship with Severn Trent Water.

“This win aligns with Mace’s utilities strategy to deliver high-quality cost and commercial management services to the sector to help them to meet the challenges that they will be facing in AMP6 and beyond.”

The news comes after Severn Trent reappointed all seven of its design and build engineering partners last month for a further five years.

The firms are Costain, Amey, Laing O’Rourke and Imtech Process, Morgan Sindall, Mott MacDonald Bentley, MWH Treatment and North Midland Construction.
