Fisher German has won a major eight-year contract to provide land agency services on the United Utilities ‘Land Agency Framework’.
The contract will see us advise on matters including acquisitions and access rights for the United Utilities, which is responsible for water and wastewater services in the North West of England, in relation to its capital projects. The contract delivery is being led by Head of Infrastructure Consultancy George Simpson and supported by a team of more than 15 surveyors at our Stafford and Knutsford offices.
George said: “The water sector has been an important growth area for Fisher German in recent years and we are absolutely delighted to win a place on the United Utilities Land Agency Framework for the first time. United Utilities is one of the UK’s major water companies, delivering 1.8 billion litres of water a day to more than three million homes and businesses across the North West region, and also treats all of the wastewater.
“The framework covers one of our core service offerings of access and rights management for United Utilities’ infrastructure programme. It also gives us the opportunity to add further value by advising on matters such as building surveys, planning, valuation and agribusiness where relevant. The contract will see our teams working with the company on its capital projects, such as laying new pipelines and the development of new treatment works. We are looking forward to working with United Utilities’ property team, engineering teams and delivery partners as we have with our existing major clients to share knowledge and ideas and promote best practice.”
