Eric Wright Water has made a number of key appointments after winning places on three Yorkshire Water frameworks.
Design manager Scott Lord, frameworks manager Matt Barney (Severn Trent Water), electrical contracts manager Dave Walls (north west) and commercial manager Paul Swann have all joined the company, which employs over 200 staff and contractors nationwide across four offices and has an annual turnover of £45m.
The company, which is part of the Eric Wright Group, has been selected for Yorkshire Water’s complex civil framework, its MEICA framework, and also its minor MEICA framework.
Work delivered via the complex civil & MEICA framework, will include the design, build and refurbishment of Yorkshire Water’s treatment assets including reservoirs and pumping stations. The minor MEICA framework will be a continuation of the existing framework worked on in the area. The complex frameworks will be supported by the civil engineering division within Eric Wright Group.
Eric Wright Water has been working with Yorkshire Water for the last five years and the new frameworks will span work delivered between 2020-2025. The company, which is based at Bamber Bridge near Preston, is also delivering projects via frameworks with Scottish Water and Severn Trent Water and is a supply chain partner with United Utilities.
Neal Whittle, managing director of Eric Wright Water, said: “Having worked closely with Yorkshire Water for the last five years, we are very pleased to renew our partnership with them. We have invested in the business by developing our people and recruiting a number of key individuals to our multi-disciplinary engineering team who will be instrumental in delivering the work through these frameworks.”
