Arup has been appointed for a 5-year framework agreement with Manila Water Company, Inc. to develop a series of large water, wastewater treatment and sewerage projects.
The scope of this framework includes feasibility study, design, procurement, and construction management of pre-identified system projects in the water supply and used water categories for Manila Water. Arup is working in a joint venture with GHD, a multinational technical professional services firm to deliver these services.
This is the first framework for a similar utility in the Southeast Asia region. The commission results from our long-term relationship with Manila Water, who we have been working with in their expansion projects for the past 10 years.
Arup will develop a core team to support this work which will improve project output through continuous improvement on local water projects and transfer international best practice to the region.
