Join us in building a better future… together

Tilbury Douglas is delighted to be working in partnership with Thames Water to deliver fantastic infrastructure, brilliantly and to make things better for current and future generations.

We are proud to be the primary non-infrastructure design and construct partner in the Thames Valley area delivering asset improvements that will further improve the environment and the quality of drinking water during the AMP7 regulatory period.

More details about the project

Our patch is mainly in the NW quadrant of the Thames Valley region to the north of the M4 from Reading to Chippenham – we are already working on the designs for multiple projects around Oxford and in the Cotswolds.

The projects we are delivering include civil engineering and mechanical and electrical works and vary in value from £3m to £25m – we expect our annual framework turnover to be circa £45m from 2022 onwards.

We have committed to working collaboratively with Thames Water, our valued strategic suppliers, and other stakeholders to embed MMC (Modern Methods of Construction) and off-site manufacture to realise leading safety, health and wellbeing, quality, customer service, sustainability and efficiency performance improvements.

From March 2022 we will be mobilising our site teams and we are therefore embarking on an exciting journey to attract dynamic, ambitious and creative people to join our current framework delivery team progressively over the first half of 2022.

Modern Methods of Construction

Modern Methods of Construction are increasingly important to the future of the sector. The Government’s 2025 Construction Strategy has set ambitious targets to reduce carbon, enhance sustainability and promote the use of ‘smart’ technology.

We are committed to the use and integration of Modern Methods of Construction in our business. Our Technical team uses collaborative technology to store standardised solutions and key supplier data. This data can be used to create a digital replica of a project – a ‘digital twin’. This digital twin provides a fuller understanding of a facilities components, interfaces and modules. It also provides a better basis for managing the asset, understanding operational carbon usage and reducing whole life cost.
