Barhale recommits to Anglian Water’s @one Alliance to deliver £2.6 billion package of investment over AMP8.

Barhale is set to continue its partnership with Anglian Water’s @one Alliance ahead of the upcoming Asset Management Period (AMP8) from 2025 to 2030, during which the water company is proposing its largest ever package of investment.

The existing @one Alliance partners – Balfour Beatty, Barhale, Mott MacDonald Bentley (MMB), MWH Treatment, SKANSKA and SWECO – have already delivered £1.3 billion in work, half of Anglian Water’s overall enhancement portfolio, so far in AMP7 (2020-2025).

For AMP8, Barhale will remain a full member of the @one Alliance from April 2024, offering civil, mechanical and electrical engineering, complex infrastructure and tunnelling expertise.

The @one Alliance is poised to deliver a record £2.6 billion of Anglian Water’s overall £9 billion investment in AMP8, with much of this work focused on protecting and enhancing the East of England’s natural environment and providing resilience to climate change.

James Haddon, Barhale’s Eastern Region Director said:

“Anglian Water is England and Wales’s largest water company by geographical area and has committed to an impressive programme to provide resilience, enable growth, improve ecological quality and become carbon neutral across the region. These are huge challenges and it is a testament to the @one Alliance’s success that it continues to set a benchmark for collaboration and innovation both within the water industry and beyond.

“We are very proud to have been a part of the @one Alliance since its launch in 2005 and to be extending that relationship through the next AMP.”

Anglian Water’s Director of Strategic Delivery and Commercial Assurance, Jason Tucker, highlighted the unprecedented opportunity for the water company and the @one Alliance to deliver on their purpose of bringing environmental and social prosperity to the region during AMP8.

A key aspect of the @one Alliance’s continued success has been the embedding of incentives around efficiency, innovation, culture and high performance, enabling Anglian Water to deliver its ambitious investment programme and reduce the total cost from £10 billion to £9 billion, a 10% reduction.

Ian Hutchinson, Managing Director of Anglian Water’s @one Alliance, said:

“Alliancing in this way allows partners to reimagine traditional ways of working by encouraging innovative thinking, advancement of new technology, and collaborative working between partners. This flexibility means that the @one Alliance plays a crucial role in enabling Anglian Water to deliver large-scale investments to build its region’s resilience against climate change.

“By combining the @one Alliance’s partners’ years of investing in innovation and efficient delivery, we’ve been able to decrease the total cost of our proposed AMP8 plans from £10bn to £9bn, a 10% reduction. We’ve already seen how successful and powerful a truly integrated and collaborative alliancing approach can be. That’s why we’re delighted to welcome back our much-valued partners, along with Binnies this AMP, to support us in delivering this much-needed investment for our region.”
