New Water and Environment Management Frameworks
19 December 2011
The Construction Enquirer reports that the Environment Agency has started the search for a new line up of contractors and consultants for its next generation supplier arrangements. The agency said the new set up would help it achieve greater focus on outcome and performance specifications.
The asset delivery partner contracts will be worth up to £750m in total, covering inland and coastal flood defence work, water resources, river restoration, habitat creation and mechanical, electrical and instrumentation control.
This is an interesting article; it seems like more and more collaborative alliances are happening which means best use of resources and knowledge. Along with this we believe that the Environment Agency will get 'value for money' as well as providing more sustainable fresh water and coastal protection work.
