When people living south and east of London turn on the tap, they expect their water supply to be safe, reliable, and environmentally sound.
South East Water meets those expectations, delivering over 550 million liters of water daily to two million customers in Kent, Sussex, Surrey, and elsewhere in the United Kingdom. With over 14,500 kilometers of water mains, 339 pumping stations, 197 reservoirs, and 90-plus treatment works, this water utility needs a smart and efficient way to manage its infrastructure.
Jacobs has been helping meet that critical need, providing environmental, health and safety, and program management support on a range of capital delivery programs.
We first partnered with South East Water in 2009; creating a highly effective, integrated delivery team that combines South East Water's knowledge of asset management and stakeholder engagement with Jacobs' expertise in delivering complex infrastructure programs. The teams have collaborated on the delivery of treatment plants, reservoirs and new water sources, water mains, flood and emergency plans, and strategic pipeline planning.
By sharing both project responsibilities and program outcomes, a lasting alliance has been forged. South East Water has cut pre-construction costs by 20 percent, while gaining valuable expertise and leading-edge program management capabilities.
