Irish Water was formed as a public utility in 2013 as a subsidiary of the Ervia Group and provides public water services to more than 80 percent of the population of Ireland.
Since 2017, we have been advising and managing the infrastructure programme, contributing to the delivery of the €5.5bn capital investment programme.
These include establishing the highest health and safety standards, delivering capital efficiency savings of €500m, evolving Irish Water into a high performing utility putting the company on a solid commercial footing, and supporting economic growth in line with economic and spatial planning policy.
Embedded within the leakage reduction programme, our project management team actively contributes to Irish Water’s campaign to save water. The programme has saved 166 million litres of drinking water a day up to the end of 2021.
A number of projects which will yield significant benefits to local communities are also on site, targeting water quality improvements and the alleviation of boil water notices in the network. These projects will also secure the steady supply of safe drinking water for customers in water-stressed areas, facilitating population growth and new industry.
Our team provides programme and project management, governance and control, estimating, safety, health and quality assurance, and contract services. We also have subsequently assisted in improving the predictability of Irish Water’s capital and infrastructure programme performance against its business plan objectives.
