BAM appointed to help South West Water deliver its £2.8 billion record investment programme.

The UK’s South West Water (SWW) has enlisted BAM as a key partner in its ambitious £2.8 billion investment initiative, the AMP 8 Engineering Capital Delivery Programme. This aims to enhance infrastructure and bolster water resilience amid climate change.

BAM’s role encompasses upgrading wastewater infrastructure in Cornwall, directly addressing beach pollution and improving water quality for around 3.5 million people across the South West.

This is part of the broader Amplify alliance with construction partners like Clancy, Mott McDonald Bentley, Tilbury Douglas, MWH Treatment, and Network Plus Envolve, who will execute SWW’s investment plan from 2025 to 2030.

Huw Jones, Executive Director, BAM, said: ‘We are delighted to have been selected as a major partner in the South West Water Alliance to help deliver such a significant programme of infrastructure improvements. We look forward to supporting South West Water to deliver this vital programme of investment that will benefit millions of people across the South West by improving water quality, reducing pollution and delivering a sustainable environment.

This portfolio of work wholly aligns with our commitment to build a sustainable tomorrow, as we look to support South West Water on their journey to net zero, whilst leaving a lasting legacy for communities across the South West.’

Susan Davy, South West Water’s Chief Executive, said: ‘I’m delighted to introduce Amplify, which will turn our record planned investment of £2.8 billion in the region into reality for customers and communities.

We’re already tackling the challenges customers care about most, and by working with our supply chain partners, we will also be creating jobs and supporting the local economy across the Greater South West.’

The alliance has already started projects to significantly reduce storm overflow usage, protect bathing waters, and strengthen water resilience. This is expected to generate around 2,000 new jobs and involve investments in new treatment facilities and reservoirs.
