Severn Trent to hold convention to recruit plumbers and trainees for £78million pipe replacement scheme in Coventry
Plumbers are invited to a convention to apply for work on a £ 78 million pipe replacement project across Coventry.
Over the next three years, Severn Trent will replace 25,000 customer-owned lead supply pipes as part of its Green Recovery program.
The doors of Severn Trent’s Academy in Finham, Coventry will open on Friday January 14th for plumbers and prospective plumbers to learn more about how to participate in the program.
The company can leave the qualification through the WatrerMark program to unskilled plumbers,
Laura Bingham of Severn Trent said, “We know how difficult times are for many due to the pandemic, so when we were creating this work program we knew we wanted to involve as many local plumbers and businesses as possible.
“The goal of this session is to work with as many local plumbers as possible who would like to be watermarked if they aren’t already, and to understand how we can work together to replace utility lines from leading customers, which can be especially harmful to babies and children.
“This is a really exciting and ambitious project – so while we’re doing the sharing with our own teams, we really want to give other installers and companies the opportunity to do this job where Severn Trent will be an essential part of the job means that the customer replaces his pipe and we support local companies. “
Severn Trent teams will be attending the academy and anyone wishing to attend can receive more information via email [email protected].
Severn Trent has started rolling out its trial in the Henley Green (CV2) neighborhood of the city, where residents initially expressed their interest.
The teams then conduct a tour of the property to arrange a replacement if the property meets the required criteria.
Severn Trent will seek to expand the area where the pipes will be replaced starting March next year and open the pilot to those with a Coventry zip code (CV1 through CV6).
The Coventry work is part of Severn Trent’s broader $ 566 million Green Recovery program.
