CMDP is a Joint Venture between Costain and MWHT based on a 50/50 share relationship.

The Joint Venture was initially formed in 2015 to deliver the 5 year (2015 - 2020) AMP6 (Process) Programme in South East England (East Sussex and Kent) for Southern Water. The Delivery Contract was worth £200 million over 5 years.

The success of this partnership means that CMDP have been awarded a follow- up contract of AMP 7, delivering a range of schemes to maintain and improve Southern Water's water supply and wastewater treatment works in the eastern half of its region (Kent & East Sussex).
