Interserve, the international support services and construction group, has been awarded a place on the Highways Agency £5 billion Collaborative Delivery Framework (CDF), the largest ever framework for the improvement of England’s motorway and trunk road infrastructure.
The company is one of five contractors that will be selected to undertake schemes with values of up to £25 million, which may be extended to £50 million, within the total £450 million indicated spend allocated to Lot 2 of the CDF.
The CDF will last for four years, with the option to extend for a further two years, and will enable the Highways Agency to invest in England’s major roads through four separate Lots encompassing 26 suppliers.
Graham Dalton, Highways Agency chief executive said, “It is not just the scale of this framework that is important but the way it is designed to bring the Agency, designers and contractors together in one large collaborative team. We expect to deliver this major investment programme efficiently, speedily and with real effort to minimise disruption to road users while we build.”
Ian Renhard, managing director of Interserve Construction said, “This award highlights our strong track record in delivering complex construction projects across the UK and we are delighted to be able to use this expertise to provide sustainable and long-term improvements for the country’s strategic road network.
“We have worked with the Highways Agency on numerous projects over the past 20 years including several major ECI schemes where innovation helped provide delivery improvements. We look forward to enhancing this skillset by working collaboratively with the Highways Agency, the CDF partners and our supply chains to deliver the exciting challenges that lie ahead.”
