Stantec appointed to Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water’s AMP8 Engineering Consultancy Framework

Stantec will support Dŵr Cymru Cyfyngedig (Welsh Water) with its AMP8 Capital Delivery programme


Stantec, a global leader in sustainable design and engineering, has been appointed to provide a range of consultancy services on Dŵr Cymru Cyfyngedig’s AMP8 Engineering Consultancy Framework. The water company, referred to as Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water, will now leverage Stantec’s local presence and expertise in collaboration with other suppliers on the framework when delivering its £4 billion programme.

The framework, which will run for a period of four years with the option to extend for another four, will see Stantec providing feasibility and optioneering services alongside other suppliers. These will help Welsh Water identify and deliver the most effective and sustainable water solutions as part of its capital delivery programme.

Stantec’s teams will carry out root cause analysis, modelling, solution evaluation, and environmental assessments to help achieve Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water’s ambitious affordability, outcome, and sustainability objectives throughout AMP8 and beyond.

Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water provides water and sewerage services to more than 3 million people living and working in Wales as well as some adjoining parts of England. It operates 838 wastewater treatment works, 66 impounding reservoirs, 63 water treatment works, and supplies an average 828 million litres of water daily through a network of 26,500 kilometres of water mains. The framework will support the maintenance, upgrade, and expansion of this large network of assets, ensuring a reliable supply of clean water and the management of wastewater across 30,000 kilometres of sewers.

Stantec’s appointment comes within a continued period of growth and success for the business across the UK and Ireland. With more than 3,000 employees and 30 offices across these regions, the design and engineering firm is working closely with water companies, governments, local authorities, and communities to help support water network resilience, improved water quality, and the environment.

“This framework win is an incredibly exciting opportunity for our current and future colleagues in Wales who are always looking to use their expertise to create positive impacts within their own communities,” said Scott Jackson. “Our appointment to this major AMP8 framework reflects our growing influence on the future of water management.

“From nature-based solutions and integrated wetlands to intelligent water networks and partnership working, there’s so much value, knowledge, and best practice we can bring to Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water. We’re looking forward to working collaboratively alongside other partners on the framework to identify the most impactful and innovative solutions for the many communities our client serves.”

"The next 5 year period will see our largest ever investment into enhancing our environment and protecting the water we supply to our customers”, added Andy Taylor, Director of Asset Planning at Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water.

He continued: “We look forward to working with Stantec on our Engineering Consultancy Services framework to support us delivering our investment so that we can continue providing efficient, cost-effective water and wastewater services to our three million customers."

Stantec’s appointment to the Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water framework follows successful AMP8 framework bids for South West Water, Northumbrian Water, Southern Water, and Thames Water. Find out about career opportunities with Stantec’s water teams.
