Clancy secures place on Thames Water capital framework
Clancy has extended and expanded its long-term partnership with Thames Water as the sector moves into the new Asset Management Period – AMP7.
Expansion in to capital programmes
Clancy has secured a place on Lot 2 of Thames Water’s new Thames-wide framework for capital programmes. With an overall estimated value of £170m, Lot 2 of the framework is for infrastructure projects and covers all underground works.
The appointment will see the business now bid to deliver a range of projects ranging from the rehabilitation and replacement of potable and waste mains, to pumping assets, aqueducts and tunnels.
The business’ work on the capital programme will be headed up by Andy Mount, regional framework manager, who has rejoined the business from Skanska. The framework will run for the course of the AMP period up to 2025, with an option to extend into AMP8,
Repair and maintenance partnership extended
Clancy has also extended its existing framework for repair and maintenance on the clean water network. The partnership will see Clancy continue to work in joint venture with Kier (KCD) as part of Thames Water’s Infrastructure Alliance.
Matt Cannon, Chief Executive at Clancy, said that the framework appointments reflected the strength of the business’ work with Thames Water over the course of the last AMP, as well as its growing focus on capital programmes for its water clients alongside maintenance:
“As a business we have now been working with Thames Water for over twenty five years. Our position on these new and renewed frameworks will see us continue to work with Kier and our wider partners to maintain and build resilience across the network.
“The start of the new AMP period for water is seeing us extend long term partnerships as well as pursue new opportunities, especially in capital programmes. Here we will be well placed to leverage our existing expertise working across utilities to meet the needs of water customers across the Thames region.
“The last few weeks have seen the water sector work extraordinarily hard to support communities during the Covid-19 crisis, while facing longer term concerns around sustainability and the demands of a complex, ageing network. Our long term outlook, secure order book and investment in our expert team will ensure we can meet these challenges to help build a smarter, greener industry.”
