K&D vies for place on Railtrack projects

KENNEDY & Donkin has brought in a team of senior programme managers from the US in an effort to win a place on Railtrack's list of programme planners for major projects.

The six senior managers come from K&D's parent company Parsons Brinkerhoff and is an indication of how valuable the framework agreement work is viewed. Parsons Brinkerhoff is one of the world's largest transport engineering companies.

K&D is one of ten companies asked to tender for the Railtrack work. Brown & Root and Bechtel are also known to be on the list. The others are thought to include Fluor Daniel, WS Atkins, Andersen, Mace, Mott Macdonald, Bovis and Laing.

The tenders, which involved preparing model programmes for East Coast Main Line and the West Anglia Route Modernisation, have to be submitted by 12 July.

Parsons Brinkerhoff, which took over K&D last August, has been responsible for programme management on some of the largest projects in the US including the massive Boston Artery scheme.

The firm is now targeting Europe for major expansion and considers becoming a Railtrack framework programme planner a priority.
