About the entity

Thames Water
Every day, we serve 15 million customers across London and the Thames Valley.

Thames Water has implemented a Technical Partner Framework to support the delivery of its Strategic Resource Options (SRO) Programme. As part of this recent procurement exercise, Thames Water, sought to work with partners that demonstrated extensive experience in developing and supporting large complex infrastructure projects in the current UK planning environment.  

The Technical Partner Framework has been awarded to three consortiums:  

  • Arup & Binnies  
  • AtkinsRéalis & Stantec  
  • Jacobs & Mott MacDonald  

The company predicts that that across London and the Thames Valley, it will need an additional billion litres of water every day for its customers in the next 50 years. The framework will support the partnership work required to deliver the major infrastructure needed to meet the water scarcity challenges ahead, including climate change and a growing population.   

In announcing the successful completion of this framework procurement, Mohit Farmah, Head of Procurement and Supply Chain for Thames Water’s Strategic Resource Options Directorate, said: “This Framework Agreement marks a significant step forward with our Strategic Resource Options Programme. We will now look to work with our technical partners to drive the development of innovative solutions, which will protect the environment, benefit our customers and secure future water supply to enhance drought resilience.”
