Thames Water

London, United Kingdom - A collaborative alliance with the UK’s largest water and wastewater services company to achieve a step-change in the delivery of its AMP6 and AMP7 capital investment programs.

Thames Water Infrastructure Investment Improvements

Thames Water is the UK’s largest water and wastewater services company, supplying around 2.6 billion liters of tap water to 9 million customers across London and the Thames Valley. It also removes and treats more than 4 billion liters of sewage for 15 million customers. 

 Arcadis was appointed in 2014 to help Thames Water achieve a step-change in the delivery of its AMP6 and AMP7 capital investment programs for essential improvements to its infrastructure between 2015 and 2025.

 A new ‘alliance’ approach was taken in the tender and procurement process, which enables the company to work in a collaborative way with its supply chain. The program delivered infrastructure services as an additional procurement event. The value of both programs is approximately €8 billion over the five years of AMP6, and the combined contracts have the potential to be the largest ever in the UK water industry.

 The successful process ensured that Thames Water was able to attract and procure the best organizations and people in the industry ahead of the market. It has provided clear role definitions and recommendations for its partners, and incentivized them to generate new ideas and solutions that deliver efficiencies and other benefits to the overall project.
