Construction consultancy firm WYG has signed a £12 million agreement to oversee public utility works across the Balkans.
The contract, an extension of a deal awarded by the European Union two years ago, will run until 2014. It includes around 50 projects, focussing largely on efforts to improve the transport, environment and energy infrastructure.
Keith Cook, WYG’s director of policy advice and programme management, claimed the new business was evidence of the company’s dedication to the project.
“The timely extension of this programme, in both investment of time and funding, half way through the original contract, is testament not only to the commitment and confidence of the Infrastructure Projects Facility, but secures even greater benefits and momentum for countries across the Western Balkans,” he said.
WYG, which is based in Leeds, has successfully completed 19 projects across the region, and is currently contracted on a further 14.
