Balfour Beatty, Carillion and Costain have been the biggest winners on the Highways England’s £5bn Collaborative Delivery Framework so far, Construction News can reveal – while some contractors have won less than £500,000 of the £2.72bn awarded.
A freedom of information response from Highways England showed Balfour Beatty had scooped work on six schemes worth a total of £462m to the business.
|Skanska Construction *||£261,036,155|
|John Sisk & Son||£22,926,076|
|Lagan Construction Group||£22,926,076|
|Hochtief (UK) Construction||£630,000|
In contrast, Graham, Volker Fitzpatrick and Amey have not won any construction jobs so far, landing just one £480,000 package each covering buildability advice to the designers of certain schemes.
Carillion has bagged £429m of work across six projects, while Costain is understood to have won just under £400m through the framework, including two wins as part of a joint venture with Skanska, where the exact value to each party has not been disclosed*.
More than £2.44bn has been paid to contractors through the framework, while just under £300,000 has been awarded to consultants across 79 schemes.
The joint venture to scoop the highest value of work in the consultants lot was a CH2M and Arcadis team, which has so far won work totalling £48m across three schemes.
|CH2M / Arcadis||£48,290,204|
|Mott MacDonald / Sweco (formerly Grontmij)||£36,104,479|
|Jacobs / Atkins||£35,283,516|
|Atkins / CH2M||£30,000,000|
|WSP / Parsons Brinckerhoff (Now WSP)||£11,450,234|
|Arup / Atkins||£10,635,804|
|Mouchel (Now part of WSP)||£3,418,512|
|Arcadis / Mouchel||£1,498,093|
CH2M / Arcadis, Mott MacDonald / Sweco and Aecom were the biggest winners in the consultants lot, winning over £120m of design work between them.
Construction News last year reported that Highways England was to regionalise the remainder of its consultants work through regional clusters.
