Tender success as McCann named on significant Northumbrian Water Framework

Northumbrian Water has announced the completion of its AMP8 framework procurement process, with Nottingham-based civil and electrical engineering firm McCann confirmed on the framework alongside 32 fellow partners.

This new framework will support the delivery of Northumbrian Water’s £3.8bn AMP8 capital investment programme and create a wide range of opportunities for construction and engineering contractors across the UK.

11 contractors will be entering the water sector for the first time through the framework including McCann – who will be one of the contractors responsible for the delivery of civil engineering works across LOT G; a multi-disciplinary LOT covering both below ground infrastructure and above ground non-infrastructure projects.

LOT G is one of 11 procurement LOTs across the Northumbrian Water and Essex & Suffolk Water operating areas, with the chosen partners predominantly working in close collaboration with the company’s in-house integrated Delivery Services (IDS) team across a number of short-term schemes.

Contractors will also have the opportunity to work with the company’s Living Water Enterprise. The estimated value of the LOTs ranges from £0 – £5m to £20m – £40m per annum.

John McCann, Managing Director at McCann, is delighted to see the business named on the framework as it makes its first steps into the water sector.

“Northumbrian Water’s AMP8 Framework is significant in both size and value but more importantly, it will see a wide range of schemes set in motion that will transform the region’s water infrastructure,” explains John.

“For our team to be recognised as having the necessary skills and experience to deliver a wide range of schemes within our allotted LOT is testament to our agile business model,” he adds.

“We’ve certainly proven ourselves to be adept at entering new markets throughout our 50+ years in business in order to meet ever-evolving infrastructure demands and we’re looking forward to collaborating with fellow contractors and Northumbrian Water’s in-house IDS team across a broad range of schemes over the coming years.”
