Faithful+Gould Appointed to Key Role on Thames Water Capital Programme

Dale Potts
Thames Water has appointed project and cost consultant Faithful+Gould to provide quantity surveying services for the delivery of its capital investment programme. The framework contract is for up to 10 years duration subject to a rigorous cost and performance regime.

Faithful+Gould director John Wood commented, "The capital programme delivery model at Thames Water has evolved over the past 15 years. Significant cost reductions have already been achieved but further efficiencies are required for the delivery of the AMP4 programme. Innovative solutions and processes are needed in order to meet the challenging targets set. The performance measurement regime, which is central to the contract, will be key to driving continuous improvement and development of best practice which in turn will provide the necessary cost savings. We are looking forward to working with all of Thames Water’s partners to make a real difference to project implementation."
