A joint venture of Amey and Black & Veatch has been appointed preferred bidder to provide a range of waste water services valuing more than £340 million in collaborative alliance with Scottish Water.
Amey and Black & Veatch, operating as BBV*, will start work in April 2014 and be responsible for programme management, design, stakeholder engagement and construction of sewer infrastructure work across Scotland.
The Quality and Standards IV (Q&S) Investment Programme will run until April 2021. Under an alliance agreement Amey and Black & Veatch will operate as equal joint venture partners working in collaboration with Scottish Water.
Each of the joint venture partners has provided waste water services on behalf of Scottish Water for over 20 years. This work forms part of a wider investment by Scottish Water to improve infrastructure for its five million customers across the country.
Geoff Aitkenhead, Scottish Water’s Director of Asset Management, said: "We look forward to working with our new alliance partners to build on the investment work of the last 12 years."
"They will help us deliver the next stage of our continuing investment in water and waste water infrastructure. This will deliver real benefits and improve service for communities while supporting the economy and jobs across Scotland."
Amey Chief Executive Mel Ewell said: "We are delighted to build on the services that we deliver for Scottish Water, by combining Black & Veatch’s global water sector experience with our design and delivery expertise. Working collaboratively we can support Scottish Water through their investment programme delivering vital services and tangible benefits to communities across Scotland."
Steve Canney, Black & Veatch Director and JV Chief Operating Officer, added: "The services this joint venture provides will make a real difference; creating environmental and health benefits for communities across Scotland. We have been involved in some of Scottish Water’s largest projects and look forward to take this successful relationship forward."
Byzak - part of Amey - and Black & Veatch will operate as BBV, equal joint venture partners under a collaborative alliance agreement with Scottish Water.
