Skanska will be working on three major water schemes, all starting on 1st April 2015, providing solutions for the development and delivery of improvement programmes for Anglian Water, Thames Water and Welsh Water.
Skanska's commitment to contribute to a more sustainable world is one of its core values and the company is bringing its green expertise, and highly collaborative culture to help these clients supply clean and safe water for the communities in their areas.
These schemes all began with an Early Contractor Involvement (ECI) phase, enabling all of the project partners a sustained period of collaboration, working together on defining how solutions will be delivered, driving best use of innovation to achieve efficiency gains and reduce cost.
During the delivery phase contractors will draw on the sustainability experience of each of the partners, using BIM technology to bring whole-life costing and carbon foot-printing considerations to every project and programme.
Thomas Faulkner, managing director of Skanska's civil engineering business said: “The increasing move towards collaboration will encourage even more innovation than has been seen in the past. There is huge potential in harnessing the great knowledge and ideas from across the water industry including all of our supply chain partners. Collaboration makes our industry stronger, more sustainable and fitter for the future.
“As we’re working with Anglian, Welsh Water and Thames, we’re able to share from our experience across all three in order to contribute to the successful delivery of these significant programmes. That’s real collaboration.”
