Safeguarding a vital supply

Offering an end-to-end service for the water sector

  • Ensuring the security of the UK’s water supplies
  • Working to help remove hundreds of properties from flood risk registers
  • Mitigating the risk of failure of old and underperforming assets and consequent fines or penalties

Our water sector customers receive an end-to-end service through our broad range of capabilities covering civil engineering, utility services, tunnelling, and mechanical and electrical design and installation.

Working with many of the UK’s water companies, we help them to improve their water and wastewater assets, ensure the security of water supplies and mitigate the risk of failure of old and underperforming assets and consequent fines or penalties. Delivering a range of projects from small plants to major treatment facilities, we have delivered projects for customers including Severn Trent Water, Thames Water, Yorkshire Water, Dwr Cymru Welsh Water and Bristol Water.

As part of the MVB joint venture we delivered the four-mile Lee Tunnel worth more than £400 million for Thames Water. The tunnel will improve water quality in the River Lee by intercepting a combined sewer overflow at Abbey Mills Pumping Station, Beckford.

Our water capabilities are complemented by industry-leading tunnelling expertise, and our work in the energy sector, where we hold a number of long-term gas and electricity frameworks.
