Highways Agency confirms Construction Management Framework members

England’s Highways Agency has confirmed the companies working on its new Construction Management Framework (CMF2) that will provide nine different specialist services on projects costing between £500,000 to £10 million (US$811,000 – US$16 million) across the North West and West Midlands. The total value of the contract is around £300 million (US$487 million) over the four years until November 2013. The companies will work on improvements to congestion hot-spots, road-surface renewals and maintenance of structures.

The framework process creates a list of companies that have been through a competitive tendering process and can be called upon by the Highways Agency to provide specialist services on medium-sized projects, without the need for retendering each time work is required to be undertaken. They may also call in subcontractors and all will use ‘lean’ construction techniques to eliminate waste and deliver the most effective solutions to projects. A particular strength of the construction management framework concept is that it allows a collaborative approach between the team of contractors, whether working on a particular scheme or not, and promotes a ‘project comes first’ attitude with peer pressure contributing to performance.

The companies on CMF2 for Area 10, which covers south Lancashire, Merseyside, Greater Manchester and Cheshire and Area 9, covering Herefordshire, Staffordshire, Warwickshire, Worcestershire and the West Midlands are Osborne and Balfour Beatty (civil engineering), Tarmac and Aggregates Industries (surfacing), Chevron, HW Martin and Tarmac (traffic management), Roy Hankinson (painting), Tarmac and Joe Roocroft (safety fencing), J McCann (electrical), VolkerLaser and Freysinnet (cathodic protection), Interserve and Freysinnet (concrete repairs), and VolkerLaser (bridge deck waterproofing).
