  • About Costain and your project.

    The CiM6 framework is a circa £350m AMP6 programme across the southern area of the Severn Trent Water (STW) catchment area. Managed from co-located offices close to Junction 15 of the M40, the STW West 2 area encompasses parts of Gloucestershire, Worcestershire, Warwickshire and areas of Birmingham.  Individual projects range from less than £100k to over £20m.  Overall, STW’s AMP6 (south) Non-Infrastructure framework is estimated to be approximately £350-400m (between clean and waste water wholesales) over the AMP6 period. Stantec is Costain’s key supply chain partner delivering preliminary and detailed design services in all engineering disciplines.  Costain and Stantec have formed integrated working arrangements to deliver AMP6 and together are known as CiM6.
