Skanska’s long association with Anglian Water began in 2000 during the Asset Management Programme (AMP) 3 period and we became part of Anglian Water’s @one Alliance in 2005.
The @one Alliance delivery model requires close collaboration and open knowledge sharing between all partners, Anglian Water and the supply chain.
Made up of seven companies, including Anglian Water, each member of the Alliance brings skills such as design, project management, commercial and construction expertise all of which work collaboratively to help deliver Anglian Water’s capital programme.
We have continued to be part of the @one Alliance until the current five-year AMP7 programme, which runs until 2025, and have a further agreement to extend into AMP8 until 2030.
Projects within each AMP vary in size from £250k to over £20m and deliver the capital programme of Anglian Water to improve reliability and capacity and to improve the environment in which we all live.
During AMP6 and AMP7, both contracts have drawn upon Skanska’s ability to deliver large, complex, multidisciplinary construction schemes. These include water treatment works, water recycling treatment centres, pumping stations, river water abstraction systems and renewable energy facilities.
Projects range from minor civils works including pipelines, tanks, pump stations and small structures to the assembly of new treatment facilities and major installations of MEICA equipment for primary, secondary and tertiary treatment, sludge processing and management facilities. And the installation of renewable energy assets to reduce their own energy consumption as part of their journey to reach net zero by 2030.
Skanska has also been at the forefront of introducing digital systems and technologies to the Alliance, which has been fully embraced by Anglian Water. Through close working with Anglian Water’s asset and operational teams the Alliance now hand over a digital operational manual containing comprehensive asset information when projects complete.
