A £ 200 million (€ 229,8 million) project for United Utilities - provider of water and waste water services to the north west of England - has been awarded to a joint venture comprising Costain, Galliford Try and Atkins.
The project, to upgrade and extend Sandon Dock sewage treatment works in Liverpool, is part of the United Utilities Asset Management Programme 5 (AMP5). The joint venture was appointed to work on the AMP5 projects in April 2010.
The Liverpool scheme involves extending the current treatment works into the adjacent dock, along with major upgrade works to the existing plant. It is said that all of this will improve the quality of the final effluent in line with discharge consents set by the Environment Agency.
