Optimise Water (LLP) appointed for prestigious Thames Water AMP5 contract

Posted: Thursday 27th May 2010

Optimise, the joint venture between J Murphy and Sons, Barhale Construction plc, Clancy Docwra Ltd and MWH, has been awarded two of Thames Water’s prestigious AMP5 contracts with a potential combined value of around £500 million over the next five years.

The Optimise Joint Venture has been awarded the contracts to undertake capital works on the network infrastructure for both clean and waste water, covering the Thames Valley and North London regions. The scope of works will include continuing to replace London's worn-out Victorian water mains, upgrading sewers to protect customers' homes from sewer flooding and installing asset monitoring equipment.

The signing on 7th April 2010 marks the start of the new five-year regulatory period, (AMP5) April 2010 to March 2015, during which time Thames Water will invest nearly £5 billion across London and the Thames Valley.

Optimise will be responsible for whole lifecycle programme management and the provision of design and build solutions to Thames Water. This award represents a considerable scope of work and will require close working liaison with a number of Agencies, Authorities, Regulatory bodies and the general public for successful delivery. The contracts represent a major undertaking and possibly one of the largest and most varied water infrastructure programmes to be carried out in the UK.

Ian Noble, Optimise Contract Director, commented: “Signing these contracts represents a huge accomplishment for the team. We now are a key part of the Thames Water team helping deliver the biggest ever AMP capital programme.”
