Kier reappointed to South West Water Framework

The construction, property, and utility company Kier has been successfully reappointed to the Network Services Alliance (NSA) Framework by South West Water (SWW), commencing in April 2020 and continuing for a duration of five years as part of the wider AMP7 utilities framework.

Appointment onto the South West Water framework means that Kier will now carry out all-hours reactive works including mains network repair and maintenance, waste water network repairs and maintenance, metering, new connections, and developer services to sites across the South West.

The Group Managing Director at Kier Utilities and Rail, Barry McNicholas stated “It is testament to our long-standing relationship with SWW that we have been awarded these ongoing AMP7 works.

“Delivering quality services for 1.8M customers in the South West has been our focus for over 25 years and we are looking forward to continuing to ensure this vital infrastructure is maintained to the same high standard and working in collaboration with SWW to offer an industry leading experience for its customers.”

The South West Water Operations Director for Drinking Water Services, Iain Vosper added: “The Network Services Alliance (NSA) contract is our most significant operational contract between 2020 and 2025.

“The NSA contract has been a key strategic contract for SWW that has been successful in delivering network distribution, metering and new connection activity since 2016/17 for both South West Water and Bournemouth Water regions.

“The collaborative approach the business took to the tender process has resulted in the inclusion of similar activities across the water, wastewater and engineering directorates to target greater efficiencies in activities previously undertaken under separate contracts.

“This is an exciting time for SWW and Kier, as we have both accepted stretching and challenging performance metrics, delivering industry-leading service to our customers.”
