A high performing alliance is announced to deliver the Anglian Water £1.3bn AMP6 programme.
The successful alliance partners were chosen by Anglian Water after they appointed JCP – collaborative working specialists – to advise on the selection and development of its capital delivery partners, ensuring that the programme delivers value for money and efficiency for all stakeholders.
For the first time Anglian Water has put every aspect of capital investment out to tender at the same time, to create four alliances that will deliver investment ranging from large new treatment works to small leakage repairs and new property connections.
Anglian Water is adopting a collaborative approach to its engagement of alliance partners, and looked to JCP for support in developing a procurement process. The result is a new team of Alliance partners united by a focus on ten key outcomes that are designed to bring value to all stakeholders, including the customer.
The final procurement process placed a high weighting on behavioural assessment of the bidders’ staff at all levels, from on-the-ground operatives to senior executives, with assessment methods tailored to suit.
Simon Vaughan, Director at JCP said that adopting a collaborative approach is the way forward for companies working on long-term, complex, high cost projects. “For over 20 years, we have developed high performance teams to produce outstanding results. Companies who have adopted this approach have dramatically and consistently reduced time and cost on capital projects and I am delighted to work with Anglian Water who have embraced this approach.”
Jason Tucker, Head of Capital Delivery at Anglian Water, said: “JCP has helped us draw together a high performance alliance to deliver a variety of very significant projects for us. We will be delivering maximum efficiency and satisfaction for our customers by working closely with partners to drive innovation that will transform our business. The JCP team has been active in each stage of our appointment strategy, and we’re grateful for their support. I am confident the process has helped us select the right partners - those who share our vision, and are committed to the outcomes we've established are critical to the delivery of our AMP6 business plan."
