A UK infrastructure contractor has been awarded a £59 million package of works by National Highways. The six-year National Highways Supplier Delivery Framework (SDF), is for renewals works.
The civil and electrical engineering firm McCann has secured works across two LOTs and six National Highways Asset Delivery Areas.
National Highways, formerly known as Highways England, recently launched the SDF in order to continue with its delivery of the already established England-wide Asset Delivery Model. Asset Delivery sees the country split into distinct areas, with works awarded to specialist contractors. Projects are awarded in Lots, with contractors placed on different tiers within those Lots. 161 places were available across the SDF, which is divided into four bands covering a total of 16 Lots.
McCann has been named as a Tier 1 contractor for renewals across Lot 7 - Lighting - in Areas 10, 12, 7, 9 and 13, as well as Lot 9 - Technology - in Areas 10, 12, 9 and 3.
This award will help McCann achieve its strategic growth plan, which was set out at the start of 2021, targeting £60-£150 million growth by 2024. Partnering directly with National Highways as a Tier 1 contractor and securing works across the SDF were seen as crucial to the company’s ambitions.
