BAM Nuttall and Morgan Sindall joint venture awarded framework contract
Bunnik, the Netherlands, 10 November 2014 - Joint venture bmJV, consisting of BAM Nuttall and Morgan Sindall, has been appointed by the Highways Agency to the largest ever framework for the improvement of England’s motorways and major A roads.
The bmJV joint venture is one of five contractors to be appointed to Lot 3b - high value construction work (scheme values between £100 million and £450 million). The framework, which will run for four years with the potential to extend to six years, is estimated to be worth up to £150 million per annum to bmJV.
The joint venture will initially target the A14 Cambridge to Huntingdon Improvement scheme and tranche one of the smart motorways programme which consists of three schemes (M5 J4-6 / M1 J16-19 / M6 J16-19).
Gary Crisp, Highways Director at bmJV, said: ‘We are delighted to have been selected to participate in this next evolution of collaborative working. The Collaborative Delivery Framework will build on the successes of the previous National Major Projects Framework as well as the collaboration and integration that delivered major schemes and saw the development of the Smart Motorway Programme.’
‘We are looking forward to developing a delivery approach that brings the best experience and skills in the industry into an arena of aligned objectives and incentives to deliver highway infrastructure enhancements quicker and more efficiently than ever.’
