Water and Waste Water

Forkers has been undertaking water and waste water schemes for water companies, local authorities and private clients for over 45 years. Our in depth experience in main drainage, sewerage, waste water treatment and water supply covers a complete range of drainage solutions, construction techniques, ground conditions and contract values.


Following our successful framework agreements with Severn Trent Water during AMP3 & AMP4 (2000 - 2011) the company is a delivery partner for Tier 1 framework contractors Amey, NMC Nomenca, Costain and MWH for Severn Trent's AMP5 and AMP6 capital investment programmes (2010 - 2020) covering sewerage and clean water infrastructure as well as sewage treatment schemes and other non-infrastructure work. The company is also engaged as a specialist Tier 2 contractor on Welsh Water's AMP6 Capital Delivery Alliance framework carrying out infrastructure and non-infrastructure projects.

 

Due to the urban location of many sewerage schemes, the impact on the public and on traffic can be significant. We have achieved notable successes in managing customer care issues and our site managers have been rewarded with many awards and commendations from Clients, Tier 1 Contractors and members of the public who were affected by the work.
