Last week another major Crossrail contract was awarded as the delay to the project delivery partner contract award became apparent.
The Transcend consortium of Aecom, CH2M Hill and Nichols Group won the £100M programme partner contract. Transcend will manage construction work across the project on behalf of stakeholders including Network Rail, Canary Wharf, Berkeley Homes, BAA, London Underground, the Olympic Delivery Authority and utility companies.
We will be announcing the award of the contract before the end of next week
