GRAHAM wins place on £1.2bn NI Water framework to strengthen partnership
Civil engineering specialist GRAHAM has been awarded a place on Northern Ireland (NI) Water’s Integrated Partnerships Framework Lot 3.
The strategic IF105 Integrated Partnerships Framework has been developed by NI Water to support the delivery of its proposed water and sewerage capital investments.
The framework consists of three multi-party Lots as follows:
- Lot 1 Water and Sewerage Infrastructure Works (£240 million)
- Lot 2 Water and Sewerage Non-Infrastructure Works (£240 million)
- Lot 3 Water and Sewerage Infrastructure and Non-Infrastructure Works (£1.2 billion)
It will run for an initial four-year term with extension options for a further four years in total.
As part of the framework GRAHAM will deliver a range of maintenance and investment projects on water and sewerage infrastructure and non-infrastructure across NI Water’s assets.
The firm will join contractors BSG Civil Engineering, DLJ JV, Farrans Glan Agua JV, GEDA Construction and J Murphy/Dawson WAM JV in delivering projects on Lot 3 the Integrated Partnerships Framework.
On the announcement of the framework award, GRAHAM’s contracts director for civil engineering, PJ McCaffery, said:
“We are delighted to have been awarded a place on this prestigious framework with our long-term client Northern Ireland Water.
“Our focus will be to work in partnership to drive greater efficiencies and value for NI Water through first class project management and delivery.
The framework award follows an ongoing portfolio of work amounting to over £20 million that GRAHAM’s Civil Engineering division is delivering for NI Water.
Current projects in progress include maintenance and improvement works to a number of Wastewater Treatment Works and Pumping Stations, replacement pumping mains, Newpoint WwPS SWELL Project Carlingford Lough and an upgrade of Drumaroad Water Treatment Works in Castlewellan. We have also recently been awarded substantial improvement works to Faughan RWPS and Weir.
“We have enjoyed a strong partnership with NI Water for many years now and are currently involved in various enhancement, maintenance and upgrade schemes across the country. The award of this Integrated Partnerships Framework Lot will further strengthen our relationship and provide a great opportunity to showcase our wide-ranging civil engineering expertise, innovation and collaboration skills in the water sector.”
