LONDON, April 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
Waterman Group is proud to announce the extension of a framework agreement, of up to four years, with the London Borough of Bexley. The framework appointment, which is a Partnering Term Contract (NEC3), is estimated to be worth £1.5m to Waterman in its first year and involves the provision of engineering and consultancy services.
The contract is an important part of the long-term regeneration framework of the Borough's growth strategy for its economic, environmental and social regeneration. The programme aims to strengthening Bexley's reputation as a desirable location to live in and do business, with plans to expand its transport infrastructure and education programmes while encouraging high aspirations and entrepreneurship.
Peter Begbey, Director of Waterman Infrastructure and Environment, praised the appointment: "We are delighted about the extended framework with the London Borough of Bexley. Our teams have been involved since 1996, with three successive term contracts, and we are very familiar with the Borough's vision and growth strategy. We look forward to our continued involvement to achieve further success for this thriving area."
The new contract commenced on 1 April 2015 and includes provision of traffic and transportation engineering services over and above the current services of civil, highway, bridgeworks, drainage, CDM-C and staff secondment.
The Infrastructure and Environment team will be supported on the contract by colleagues in Waterman Aspen, which specialises in highway and transportation secondment services.
Waterman's broad portfolio encompasses some of the most significant regeneration projects in the UK, including Battersea Power station and Brent Cross in London. The company recently received the welcome news that the three partnering contracts with Crawley Council have been extended to April 2017.
