Water & Utilities

We believe water is the most precious resource of all. The health and wellbeing of every member of our community is dependent upon a reliable source of clean water and the safe treatment of waste water. Our operation within the water sector has long been associated with quality. We are proud of our reputation and work hard to ensure we maintain the high standards we have set for ourselves. Testament to this is the amount of repeat business we have with large national suppliers including:


  • Anglian Water
  • Severn Trent Water
  • Southern Water
  • Thames Water
  • Yorkshire Water


Not only do Barhale work under framework agreements, but equally for stand-alone competitively tender projects for water companies, private developers, private infrastructure providers and other companies requiring similar skills.

We have worked with our partners in the water sector to transform how projects are managed providing a seamless transition from early scoping, through to construction and commissioning. This means lower costs and faster implementation to help our customers meet the requirements of the increasingly demanding industry regulator (OFWAT) and water users.

Our extensive experience and understanding of the regulated water market, together with our commitment to collaborative working with our key water company clients and the supply chain, enables us to capitalise on the opportunities provided by the shift to the customer outcome based focus. Our focus on TOTEX out-performance and achievement of our customers ODIs (Outcome Delivery Incentives) is directly aligned to our clients principle objectives.
