Stonbury are immensely proud to be supporting our clients across the UK at such a crucial time and have been designated as 'key workers' by DEFRA and the UK water utility companies. Our teams are working tirelessly to help secure and maintain drinking water supplies, ensuring clean and safe drinking water is provided without interruption to critical services such as our hospitals as well as the general public. Now more than ever, the safety and wellbeing of our staff is of the utmost importance and we have adapted our safe working practices to ensure social distancing precautions are in place and that the correct hygiene practices are being followed. Safety is our priority, and we endeavour to make sure everyone at Stonbury goes home safe to their family.
Through the inspection process, Severn Trent identified the need for more substantial repairs to update their asset base and so started a tender process in December 2016 for a DSR Major Repairs Arrangement for a 12 month period (with an option to extend for 6 months) from April 2017 onwards.
The agreement was to ensure that Severn Trent Water had dedicated supply chain delivery partners, commercially assessed within the market, to deliver an enhanced programme of major repairs.
After an intensive 3 month tendering process where we were extensively challenged to think laterally and developing sustainable, yet strong efficiency delivery models, Stonbury are delighted to have been awarded the Framework on a sole supplier basis and this award hugely supports our ongoing growth plans for the regional ‘Green Team’ who are responsible for delivery of the Framework.
The Green Team, currently based at the Severn Trent Melbourne WTW are near to opening their new regional office, based in Derby, which has been specifically chosen for it’s ability to cater client hot-desking and meeting facilities, which will no doubt reinforce and build on the already strong working relationship between Stonbury and Severn Trent Water.
The delivery and commercial model developed for the DSR programme is also being offered over the Severn Trent wider infrastructure network, we are excited to see what new challenges that may bring.
