Stantec scores double win on South West Water framework

Stantec has been named as a supplier for two lots on South West Water’s Engineering Consultancy Framework. 

Following a competitive tender process, South West Water Limited awarded Stantec positions on its Project and Programme Management and Engineering Design Service lots. 

South West Water, Bournemouth Water and Bristol Water are all part of South West Water Limited. 

Bristol Water supplies clean water to approximately 1.3m people in the city of Bristol and surrounding areas. 

South West Water’s region is more than 11,100 km2, serving around 1.8 million residents and Bournemouth Water provides drinking water to approximately 500,000 people from the port town of Poole to Beaulieu. 

The Engineering Consultancy Framework will see Stantec’s interdisciplinary specialists working on improvement and resilience projects across all regions served throughout the AMP 8 period. 

Stantec has worked closely with South West Water throughout AMP 7 on its existing Strategic Consultancy Framework, helping support multiple environmental and engineering projects. 

At the same time, Stantec has significantly boosted its presence and capabilities in South-west England. 

Sally Walters, Stantec operations director, said: “We know South West Water needs the best engineering consultancy resources in the market to support its ambitious AMP 8 programme. 

“Our local knowledge and expanding presence in the region, coupled with our national and global interdisciplinary specialisms puts Stantec in an excellent position to support this ambition. 

“Our teams are perfectly placed to meet South West Water Limited’s requirements over the next period.”

Susan Davy, South West Water’s chief executive, added: “These appointments will help turn our plan – the right one for our region – into reality. 

“We’re already tackling the challenges we face, but with greater investment we can go further and faster. 

“We look forward to working with our partners over the years to come as we deliver the projects to meet the needs of the Greater South.”
