We are delighted to announce that WYG has been appointed on a twelve year AMP6 Geospatial Framework for United Utilities Plc. Effective from now, this appointment consolidates WYG’s position as a leading provider of asset management consultancy services.
The framework is valued at approximately £100k per annum over its duration, and the initial five year agreement has the option to be extended for a further seven years. One of five consultants on the framework, WYG will provide a range of geospatial surveying services across the North West of England.
WYG’s team of highly skilled specialists will undertake the work, which includes land and engineering survey, utilities mapping, laser scanning, 3D modelling, confined space entry survey, LiDAR data capture, hydrographic survey and deformation monitoring.
Daniel Rogers, Associate, WYG, and Framework Manager, commented: “This is an excellent win for WYG and provides us the opportunity to further grow our Geospatial service provision within the UK. The award is both a recognition and reflection of WYG’s quality of service provision. Despite strong cost competition, WYG proposed a cost-effective yet sustainable pricing model.”
Craig Hatch, Head of Asset Management, WYG, added: “This is another important framework win for our asset management discipline and one in which our Geospatial team has been patiently targeting and developing relationships to ensure success. We are looking forward to a long and fruitful relationship with this important client.”
