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 purpose of the framework is to extend the life of existing assets, including the inspection, clean and repair to service reservoirs and water towers. As a part of Lot 1, Stonbury will carry out Design & Complex works across London and Thames Valley, and as a secondary supplier for Lot 3, they will carry out non-design works across London.
'We are delighted to be confirming another framework win following several other successful maintenance tenders earlier in the year. Having worked with Thames Water for the past six years, we are excited to have secured this framework in addition to the Thames Water Slow Sand Filter Framework we are currently carrying out, and look forward to building new relationships with their delivery and field teams'.
Stonbury recently attended the Thames Water's virtual Supplier Summit, which covered key topics, including Zero Compromise for Health & Safety, smart and efficient ways of working and customer engagement. During the event, the Stonbury team were able to network with associated contractors, sharing ideas and asking relevant questions throughout.
‘This year's supplier event was a fantastic opportunity to hear from members of the Thames Water team and build relationships with other contractors. A collaborative approach is the best way to accelerate efficiency and innovation, so it was fascinating to hear from such a mix of different people with different experiences and backgrounds. We also had the chance to take part in a virtual meeting with the Thames Water Framework Manager to discuss the requirements during AMP 7'.
Stonbury is eager to work with Thames Water during the framework period and assist them in achieving their AMP targets and sustainability goals.
