Eric Wright Water has been appointed to three frameworks for Yorkshire Water across its clean and waste water assets.
The company, which is part of the Eric Wright Group, has been selected for the Complex Civil Framework, Complex Mechanical, Electrical, Instrumentation, Control and Automation (MEICA) Framework and the Minor MEICA Framework.
Work delivered via the Complex Civil & MEICA framework, will include the design, build and refurbishment of Yorkshire Water’s treatment assets including reservoirs and pumping stations. The Minor MEICA Framework will be a continuation of the existing framework worked on in the area. The Complex frameworks will be supported by the Civil Engineering Division within Eric Wright Group.
Eric Wright Water has been working with Yorkshire Water for the last five years and the new frameworks will span work delivered between 2020-2025. The company, which is based at Bamber Bridge near Preston, is also delivering projects via frameworks with Scottish Water and Severn Trent Water and is a supply chain partner with United Utilities.
In order to support the Frameworks, Eric Wright Water has made a number of key appointments this year including frameworks’ manager Matt Barney (Severn Trent Water), design manager Scott Lord, electrical contracts manager Dave Walls (North West) and commercial manager Paul Swann.
Commenting on the appointment by Yorkshire Water, managing director of Eric Wright Water, Neal Whittle said: “Having worked closely with Yorkshire Water for the last five years, we are very pleased to renew our partnership with them. We have invested in the business by developing our people and recruiting a number of key individuals to our multi-disciplinary engineering team who will be instrumental in delivering the work through these frameworks.”
Mark Baker, Head of Programme Delivery at Yorkshire Water, commented: “We are excited to see the conclusion of this process and welcome our partners to support our ambitions and challenges into AMP7 (what is this?). They will assist in the formation of a truly collaborative, innovative and efficient delivery vehicle to help meet our Enterprise delivery model aspirations. The alignment of our objectives and a Programme First approach is a new direction for Yorkshire Water and we are confident that our partners can support this ambition.”
