Property, construction and infrastructure consultancy Pick Everard has doubled its ground investigation team in just three months following its appointment to Severn Trent Water’s £2bn AMP 7 framework.

The company is the only new supplier to be awarded a place on the prestigious four-year framework, which will deliver a range of wastewater, water treatment and pipeline services projects in the Midlands and mid-Wales.

Pick Everard has already delivered four projects as part of the framework and has four more on the go, with a further three in the planning stages.

The firm’s associate for environmental engineering Emelye Kenyon said winning a place on the framework has been a “catalyst for change” at the Leicester-based company.

She said: “At Pick Everard we have provided a strong environmental offering for more than six years, while our relationship with Severn Trent has been present for over a decade, delivering valued structural survey services across its UK-wide network.

“The decision to expand our team was a natural one in line with this newest framework, which will further establish our presence in the ground investigation sector over the next four years or more. We look forward to continuing recruit and strengthen our offering, whilst maintaining our close relationship with Severn Trent, which will help improve the services it offers to its customers across the country.”

Joseph Turner, category manager at Severn Trent, added: “We’re pleased to be continuing our relationship with Pick Everard on this exciting new venture. At Severn Trent, we are always looking at more efficient ways to invest for the future and make our services even better. We value the expertise our partners can provide to make us the most efficient water operation in the UK.”
