VGC teams have been working for client Morgan Sindall on the Yorkshire Water framework since 2005.

Our groundworks teams work on civil engineering projects to maintain the infrastructure. We cover sites across the whole of Yorkshire, some of them very remote. During coronavirus, our teams are working in pairs, to maintain social distancing as necessary.

The framework contract awarded by Yorkshire Water to a joint venture of Morgan Sindall and Sweco covers delivering capital schemes for both clean water and waste water treatment.

VGC workers were part of the team which completed the £18 million Saltend wastewater treatment works in 2017. The project improved the performance and efficiency of the plant to serve the growing local population.

Our teams are also supporting the Morgan Sindall Sweco Joint Venture (MS2JV) in upgrading the Langsett water plant. The plant supplies around 200,000 people in Sheffield and Barnsley with drinking water. The three-year scheme will involve installing a new treatment plant to treat the water from the Langsett reservoir for drinking.

Other important schemes across South Yorkshire include a £24m drinking water project at Rivelin and a £20m scheme at Lundwood sewage treatment works.
