About this event

Thames Water eight20 logo

eight2O is the largest alliance in the water sector. The partners involved are Thames Water and two design and build joint ventures made up of Costain, Atkins, Black & Veatch (CABV); and Skanska, MWH and Balfour Beatty (SMB). MWH also leads programme control and IBM is the technology innovation partner.

The alliance brings together global expertise from multiple sectors – including Thames Water – aligned around a common set of outcomes and a shared vision. eight2O is a place where all partners put in their best people, practices and techniques to deliver innovative, sustainable solutions. This brings greater value for money and benefits to Thames Water customers.

Together, the alliance will carry out £1.75BN of capital investment work during the AMP6 period (2015-2020), with the potential to extend the contract to 2025.

This presentation will give an overview of the alliance journey to date, including some of the challenges and opportunities, focusing on eight2O innovation and highlighting some programmes being delivered to meet customer outcomes.


The speaker will be Richard Blake, an eight2O Delivery Lead and Chartered Civil Engineer from Thames Water.
