The new contract will deliver the reservoir and water tower cleaning, inspection, maintenance and repair works until 31st March 2020, with the option to extend the contract for a further 5 years subject to agreement by all parties.
The tender process was managed by Sutton and East Surrey Water on behalf of the Three companies who jointly have 95no Service Reservoirs and 13no Water Towers. Whilst all Companies have awarded individual contracts to Stonbury, the tender involved developing a uniform pricing document to be operated by each client. This will ensure that the planning and delivery of contracts can be co-ordinated and provides consistency in respect of value and standards of work carried out for each client.
Project delivery for Sutton and East Surrey Water and Portsmouth Water will be carried out by Stonbury’s Orange Team whilst the Blue Team will be responsible for meeting Dee Valley Waters requirements.
