Southern Water appointed Atkins and Faithful+Gould to its Consultants Framework to develop design solutions and cost estimates for both the business plan and cost base submissions for its Periodic Review 09.
As cost consultants, Faithful+Gould was required to cost over 2000 projects which Atkins design engineered. Various scenarios were considered, developed and priced to determine the most cost-effective solutions to not only meet the planned project objectives but also 60 defined Ofwat models. These included schemes such as pumping stations, reservoirs and inlet works.
Robust quality assurance (QA) checking and verification procedures in accordance with corporate Integrated Management Systems were incorporated. We prepared over 3000 scheme estimates for the draft business plan submission and almost 2000 scheme estimates, based on principles of the Civil Engineering Standard Method of Measurement (CESMM), for the final business plan submission.
