About this event

The UK water industry is now entering the 6th AMP. The relationships between Water Companies and their contractors have been developing over the years and now the level of collaboration and risk sharing is market leading.

This talk will explain how Thames Water have moved on from AMP5 and outline the strategy they have developed to promote long term relationships that allow innovation and knowledge sharing far beyond the traditional design and build contracts.

It is envisaged that this long term approach, which shares regulatory risk and reward, provides a genuine opportunity for Thames and its supply chain partners to work in collaboration to meet the future demands of the sector and enhance the service experienced by its customers.
