Press release 15/07/2002 00:00 CET

Skanska, in association with Kvaerner E&E, has opened a new office in Peterborough to integrate its team with Anglian Water as part of its ongoing partnering agreement

The office, which houses a 25-strong team, enables the companies to work together under one roof and develop closer relationships with local suppliers and specialist trades.

Under the partnering agreement, Skanska and Kvaerner E&E carry out a range of work for Anglian Water, including upgrading, maintaining and ensuring its sewage treatment works comply with new EU regulations. It is currently working on a number of sewage treatment projects in the region, including at Tilbury, Bourn, Canwick and Broughton.

Skanska director Bill Hocking said, “The new office is a natural step. It gives us a better presence in the local market and provides even closer ties with our colleagues from Anglian Water.”

Skanska’s work in the water sector also includes building a new waste water treatment facility at Sandown, Isle of Wight, for Southern Water, while it is working in a framework for Yorkshire Water at Hull Waste Water Treatment Works.
