A joint venture between Galliford Try’s infrastructure division and Capita has won an extension to the Urban Vision partnership it agreed with Salford City Council.
The partnership, which is worth £90M in total, has been extended for three years. It provides technical services to the city council in areas such as engineering infrastructure and design and highway operations planning. Galliford Try’s role is for highways maintenance services, and the framework will now run until 2020.
The extension comes on top of two other contracts. In the latest North East Procurement Organisation (NEPO) infrastructure services framework, which is worth up to £1.2bn in total, Galliford Try has been allocated to five of the lots which are infrastructure works above £5M, highways work above £5M, marine and coastal works above £1M, highways structures above £5M and public realm works above £1M.
It has also won the civil engineering framework operated by South Tyneside Council which is worth around £20M over three years.
Galliford Try chief executive Peter Truscott said: “These awards demonstrate the breadth and versatility of the service provided by our Infrastructure division and, in particular, the strength of our highways and environmental businesses. We look forward to working with all the partners involved to make a high quality contribution to the infrastructure of the North West and North East.”
