Farrans wins Responsible Procurement award at GEM Awards


Last night Farrans Construction picked up the Responsible Procurement award at the NWG (Northumbrian Water Group) GEM Awards, in recognition of the social value we’ve been delivering on the Project Pipeline: County Durham and Tees Value contract.

Northumbrian Water Group (NWG) have a clear vision to be the national leader in the provision of sustainable water and wastewater services and it is vital that they work with suppliers who share their drive for excellence while delivering outstanding customer service.

They want to recognise the amazing contribution that supply partners play in helping NWG to achieve its vision and celebrate those that are ‘Going the Extra Mile’.

In County Durham and Tees Valley, Farrans is improving the underground network of water pipes, constructing a new 24km, 800mm diameter pipeline between Lartington Water Treatment Works and Shildon via Whorley Hill. The pipeline will cross underneath the River Tees and Alwent Beck to a depth of 50 metres. Around 200,000 customers will benefit from this work.
