Affinity Water awards maintenance framework
Affinity Water (AW) has awarded a three-year framework contract to contractor Concrete Repairs (CR). The award, which includes an option to extend for a further one or two years, is for the inspection, cleaning, repair and maintenance of reservoirs, water towers and contact tanks.
The contract began in October 2013 and covers Affinity’s three regions − central, South-east and East.
Michael Balletta, CR’s infrastructure manager, said: “Concrete Repairs and Affinity Water will work closely together to make sure that money spent on repairs and maintenance of Affinity’s assets is managed carefully for the benefit of their customers. CRL is no stranger to the water industry, having worked for all of the major water utility companies at some stage during its long history.”
