Graham has been awarded a place on the strategic IF105 Integrated Partnerships Framework developed by Northern Ireland Water.
This project follows a continuing portfolio of work worth over £20 million that Graham’s civil engineering division has already undertaken for NI Water.
The company will take on lot 3 of the framework, worth £1.2 billion, which consists of water and sewerage infrastructure and non-infrastructure works. It will run for an initial four-year term with extension options for another four years.
Graham will deliver a range of maintenance and investment projects on water and sewerage infrastructure and non-infrastructure across NI Water’s assets, joining other contractors working on lot 3 – BSG Civil Engineering, DLJ JV, Farrans Glan Agua JV, GEDA Construction and J Murphy/Dawson WAM JV.
The entire framework consists of three multi-party lots:
- Lot 1 Water and Sewerage Infrastructure Works (£240 million)
- Lot 2 Water and Sewerage Non-Infrastructure Works (£240 million)
- Lot 3 Water and Sewerage Infrastructure and Non-Infrastructure Works (£1.2 billion)
PJ McCaffery, Graham’s contracts director for civil engineering, said: “Our focus will be to work in partnership to drive greater efficiencies and value for NI Water through first-class project management and delivery.
“Current projects in progress include maintenance and improvement works to a number of wastewater treatment works and pumping stations, replacement pumping mains, Newpoint WwPS SWELL Project Carlingford Lough and an upgrade of Drumaroad Water Treatment Works in Castlewellan. We have also recently been awarded substantial improvement works to Faughan RWPS and Weir.
He added: “We have enjoyed a strong partnership with NI Water for many years now and are currently involved in various enhancement, maintenance and upgrade schemes across the country. The award of this Integrated Partnerships Framework Lot will further strengthen our relationship.”
