The programme includes construction of a new reservoir in Oxfordshire and river abstraction point on River Thames supported by water recycling.

The framework will give the company access to professional support services worth up to £160 million as it works to advance several strategic projects to address future water supply challenges. 

The partners leading programme and project management include: 

  • Arcadis Consulting   
  • Jacobs & Mott MacDonald JV 
  • Turner & Townsend Project Management 

Agilia Infrastructure and Baringa will support Arcadis, and Laing O’Rourke and Nichols will support Turner & Townsend. 

Technical Partners in the framework include Arup and Binnies, AtkinsRéalis and Stantec, and Jacobs and Mott MacDonald. 

Thames Water predicts it will need an additional one billion litres of water every day for its customers across London and the Thames Valley over the next 50 years.  

Kate Kenny, senior vice president and general manager at Jacobs, said: “Jacobs and Mott MacDonald bring major programme management capability across the entire water cycle and project lifecycle to support these complex projects.  

“As programme partner, we’re focused on helping Thames Water deliver critical, integrated water management and reuse solutions that protect communities and the environment for the long term.”
