As part of a five-year Building and Minor Maintenance Works contract, we are working in partnership with Severn Trent Water (STW) and Hafren Dyfrdwy (HD) to ensure the provision of approximately two billion litres of fresh, clean drinking water every day. Among Britain’s “largest water companies”, STW and HD serve over eight million people across the Midlands, from the outskirts of Sheffield, down to Bristol, and into north and mid-Wales. Coordinated from our offices in Wythall, Belper, Stoke, Shrewsbury (Shilton) and Hayden, we are self-delivering a reactive and planned building and civils minor maintenance works programme that incorporates STW and HD’s sites, buildings, and structures.
The mobilisation of this contract, covering a wide geographic footprint, during the Covid restrictions was a notable challenge. However, our experienced mobilisation team pulled out all of the stops to ensure the contract hit the ground running in September 2020. Furthermore, the ongoing safety of our mobile operatives in the completion of work orders, particularly those out of hours and taking place in confined sites, remains a priority.
Before breaking ground, GRAHAM personnel scan the relevant area using the very latest Cable Avoidance Tools (CAT) and Signal Generator (Gen) devices to ensure best locating practice, to reduce the number of cable strikes, and to enhance the safety of digging operations.
“We are delighted to have been awarded this prestigious contract with Severn Trent Water and Hafren Dyfrdwy. STW and HD operate in an area of more than 21,000 square kilometres that includes Birmingham and ten other major industrial cities, and we are proud to have been appointed to support its business critical operations.”
