Mott MacDonald has been appointed by Northumbrian Water Limited (NWL) as one of four consultants on its Technical Services framework in the UK. The framework covers Northumbrian Waters operating areas in the north east as well as Essex and Suffolk.
The framework will comprise technical advisory services for multidisciplinary engineering work and will include feasibility studies, outline and detail design, site supervision and construction design and management coordinator services, all with associated environmental support.
Saeed Chaudhry, Mott MacDonald’s project director said, “This framework will be a continuation of a strong working relationship with NWL as we have worked alongside the company for many years.”
He continued, “NWL have a number of challenging sustainability targets in place for the period of the framework and Mott MacDonald hope to add value and contribute by using the range of unique tools developed by Mott MacDonald such as CapIT1 and LifeCycle2.”
The framework commences in April 2011 and will be in operation for ten years, subject to reviews during the period.
Notes to editors
1) CapIT is a single resource online construction and carbon tool for civil engineering and building data, containing all carbon and cost data from the ICE CESMM3 Carbon & Price Book and Hutchins UK Building Blackbook.
2) LifeCYCLE is a cost and carbon modelling tool which quantifies initial construction costs and embodied carbon by looking at all elements making up a building or piece of infra-structure. It also calculates the cost and carbon associated with every operation and maintenance activity over the asset’s working life, enabling customers to make strategic decisions based on ‘cradle to grave’ financial and environmental performance.
