An opportunity has arisen for a Senior Quantity  Surveyor   You will be an inspirational leader, possess excellent communication and collaboration skills, and will be adept at embracing diversity to create highly effective one-team environments working with key partners and stakeholders.   United Utilities is a key customer with the Costain Water sector customer with a new Managed Service Provider (MSP) framework contract secured and mobilised by Costain in mid 2019 for an initial period of five years with an option to extend to ten years. Under the contract Costain will provide overall management and delivery of United Utilities’ larger-scale water and waste water asset maintenance activities across the entirety of its network, including 96 water treatment and 575 wastewater treatment sites, which serves over six million people in the North West of England.   This contract marks the first time United Utilities has outsourced its maintenance activity as it seeks to drive material efficiency and operational improvements in line with customer expectations and regulatory requirements. Over the duration of the framework the strategic objective is for Costain to leverage the broad suite of Leading Edge capabilities to help United Utilities move from a reactive ‘fix-on-fail’ approach to a proactive maintenance programme thereby improving the resilience of its assets and environmental outcomes whilst ensuring continuity of supply and consequently lowering costs for its customers.   The MSP contract involves the management and provision of 24x7 maintenance support across UU and thus is an extremely high profile service operating at the heart of the client’s business.   The role is predominantly based at the UU head office in Lingley Mere, Warrington – with travel to operational sites across the region on a periodic basis.
