Aecom Technology, a provider of technical and management support services for government and commercial clients, in a joint venture with Galliford Try, a British construction company, has secured a $209m contract under five-year Yorkshire Water framework worth $532m.

The contract requires Aecom and Galliford Try joint venture team, known as ETM, to design and build a new water treatment facility for the UK client at Acomb Landing in North Yorkshire and upgrade the existing wastewater treatment facilities at Calder Vale in Wakefield, West Yorkshire.

These assignments are part of Yorkshire Water’s Large Schemes infrastructure-improvement program, which will be split between four entities – each guaranteed a base workload over a five-year period.

Aecom president and CEO John Dionisio said that Aecom is excited to be a key part of this vital program that evolves its relationship with Yorkshire Water.
