Our reputation as an outstanding waste water contractor in the South East has attracted clients that include major utilities and private clients. We’re a major supplier to Thames Water, the UK’s largest water and waste water supplier with 68,000 km of sewer network, and we have worked with the business for more than 10 years.
Working on both term contracts and individual projects, our team is focused on delivering a quality service whether on our customers’ properties or off site – for our utility customers, we recognise the positive impact we can have on their Service Incentive Mechanism (SIM). Safety is key on all projects and our team have a minimum of EUSR Safety Passports and Confined Space accreditations. We use our own CCTV rig to help clients make better-informed decisions and our in-house traffic management business, BTMS, liaises with London Highways to ensure that we minimise disruption.
As part of a joint venture we are currently providing waste water civil engineering services to the Lanes Group in North London under their Waste Network Services (WNS) contract with Thames Water. This contract, worth around £9m annually, covers the maintenance and repair of the waste water infrastructure. The urban location means we often have to deploy complex civil engineering solutions to minimise disruption and to reach very deep and usually inaccessible areas of the network. These solutions might include excavating shafts and headings to carry out repairs, or using vacuum excavation in sensitive areas.
Our JV Company, Cappagh Browne Utilities, has secured the AMP6 React and Maintain Operational Partner contract for Southern Water’s sewerage network. The contract covers the provision of sewerage network maintenance services across Southern Water’s entire region – Sussex, Kent, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. Beginning in April 2015, it runs to the end of March 2020 with an option to extend for a further five years.
