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.
The framework – running for a three-year term – will cover inspections & scoping, design, faulty diagnosis & repair, emergency call outs, minor repairs to assets including covers, access platforms, grinding & hand railing and general fabrication for both potable and wastewater sites. Stonbury will also have the opportunity to extend the framework for a further five years in the future.
‘We are very excited to have been awarded the Fabrication Framework with Severn Trent Water across all six regions, and we are really looking forward to working collaboratively with new teams across STW. Securing this framework is a key part of Stonbury’s strategy as we are able to offer additional services on top of the existing Service Reservoirs and Water Production Tank Framework that was renewed earlier in the year’.
Currently delivering 20 framework contracts within the water and environmental sectors to protect water quality and enhance asset structures through various remedial works. Stonbury are keen to demonstrate their ‘in-house’ supply and install fabrication capabilities and have recognised that offering expanded services and continuous improvement is critical to maintaining long-term relationships with their clients, satisfying regulator demands and achieving the sector’s sustainability goals.
‘This contract is a perfect addition to Stonbury’s suite of frameworks we are delivering across the water industry. With our direct capability to specify, manufacture and install the required components, our aim is to provide a seamless service to Severn Trent. Our focus will be to deliver all works safely adapting our procedures as required in recognition of the different working conditions between potable and wastewater sites’.
Stonbury is looking forward to working with STW over the next AMP period and building on what is already an excellent working relationship.
