Morrison Construction's Environment business has been appointed to Scottish Water’s new Non-Infrastructure Framework for the SR21-27 investment programme, in joint venture with MWH Treatment.

The new framework is valued at £700m over a six-year time frame beginning this year, and will see the 50:50 joint venture, known as ESD, support the capital delivery functions of Scottish Water, providing process design and build solutions for water and wastewater treatment works across Scotland.  

The previous ESD joint venture delivered over 150 projects for Scottish Water during the six-year SR15 investment programme.

Bill Hocking, Chief Executive of the Galliford Try group, commented: “The water sector remains a key focus for the infrastructure side of our business and I am delighted that we have renewed our position on this framework. We are a long-term partner for Scottish Water and look forward to continuing our excellent relationship, providing high-quality solutions for their investment programme needs.”
