Jacobs has been selected as a design consultant for Northern Ireland Water’s major project partnership framework.

The framework will deliver large-scale water and wastewater projects across Northern Ireland.

It will deliver individual capital projects, including upgrades to major water and wastewater treatment plants, pumping stations and network mains. 

Jacobs is providing design services as part of a $1.5bn water and wastewater capital programme.

One of the first major projects to be delivered under the framework will be vital upgrades at Belfast Wastewater Treatment Works, expected to commence this year, to provide much needed additional and secure capacity. 

The framework will run for an initial four-year period, with the option to extend for an additional four years.

Donald Morrison, Jacobs People & Places Solutions senior vice-president Europe, said: “Jacobs has supported clients in the UK with major water and wastewater solutions for decades and these NI Water projects will make a real difference to people’s daily lives. 

“Together with our framework partners, we’ll design resilient, sustainable infrastructure to provide essential water and sanitation services to communities and businesses in Northern Ireland.” 

NI Water provides water and sewerage services to approximately 840,000 households and businesses in Northern Ireland.
