Galliford Try, in a joint venture with Costain Group and Atkins, has reached financial close on the £180m contract awarded by United Utilities Group to upgrade and extend Liverpool Waste Water Treatment Works.
The project involves the construction of a two-storey sequential batch reactor plant in the disused Wellington Dock, as well as upgrades to the existing works in the adjacent Sandon Dock to the north of Liverpool city centre.
The joint venture was appointed by United Utilities to work on its AMP5 schemes in April 2010 and the scheme, under development since May 2011, will be progressed as part of existing framework arrangements.
Greg Fitzgerald, chief executive of Galliford Try, commented: “We are delighted to secure this business from an existing framework client. It builds on our track record of delivering both clean and waste water infrastructure projects.”
