Mott MacDonald and Jacobs have been selected by Thames Water, the UK’s largest water and waste utility, as technical partner to support delivery of the water company's $5.9 billion (£4.7B) future asset investment programs under its Strategic Resource Option (SRO) framework.

The framework will help shape delivery of future asset investment programmes supporting efforts to manage water supply resiliency in London and surrounding areas.

The SRO technical framework supports three major water infrastructure projects critical to delivering water security for the south of England: the London Water Recycling, South East Strategic Reservoir Option and Severn to Thames Transfer projects. Under this eight-year professional services framework agreement, Mott MacDonald and Jacobs will deliver a range of technical, engineering, environmental, and regulatory and planning consent services to take the schemes through the development phase and into delivery.

Richard Risdon, Mott MacDonald managing director UK & Europe said: "I’m delighted to announce our appointment to this Framework. Mott MacDonald and Jacobs have an impressive track-record of providing industry leading services to the UK water sector and we look forward to continuing to work closely with Thames Water, helping deliver pioneering solutions for the benefit of the communities they serve.”

“Jacobs and Mott MacDonald combine tremendous global capabilities from major complex water infrastructure programs, and together with our UK planning experience will provide innovative support,” said Jacobs senior vice president Kate Kenny. “As the need for long-term, integrated water management solutions intensifies, we’ll work collaboratively with Thames Water to solve some of the UK’s greatest water resources challenges.”

The two companies integrate industry-leading capabilities across both the full water and project lifecycle – from planning and consulting to design and technical capabilities. Having been involved in early stages of the development of the SROs, both companies understand the strategic context, need and basis of design for these projects.

To date, Mott MacDonald and Jacobs have delivered more than 100 development consent orders (DCOs) in the UK water sector, including Thames Tideway Tunnel, the sector’s first project to be developed under the UK’s Specified Infrastructure Projects Regulations and one of the largest DCO projects in the UK water sector.
