Civil Engineering - UK - January 2018

“The way companies procure civil engineering firms to deliver work is changing, particularly in the utilities sector. Recent years have seen an increasing number of civil engineering companies enter into long-term partnerships and alliances with customers as utility companies look to form more collaborative relationships with suppliers. Alliances that last longer than the regulatory price control period are also becoming more common.
More collaborative and integrated relationships with suppliers are increasingly sought as they facilitate the delivery of long-term objectives through the most efficient solutions possible, which should also help accelerate innovation in those sectors. The utility sector was previously focussed on delivering outputs during the five-year regulatory spending period. This shift is also supported by regulatory changes, with industry regulatory bodies, such as Ofwat and Ofgem, encouraging companies to adopt more long-term strategic planning.”
