FM Conway and WSP have won three maintenance and improvement contracts with Westminster City Council valued at up to £450m.
The three deals cover highways maintenance management and public realm projects (£30m per year); public lighting maintenance management and mechanical and electrical works (£5.25m per year); and bridge and structures maintenance management and improvement (£2.5m per year).
Each contract is for eight years with an option for a four-year extension. The three individual contracts will each commence on 1 April 2014.
The FM Conway WSP partnership will provide services including: design and consultancy services; reactive and planned highway maintenance and management services; public realm projects; management and improvement of Westminster City Council’s highway assets; and the maintenance and management of two Thames crossings and all tunnels, monuments and statues.
FM Conway has worked with the council on highways services since 1991 and WSP has provided transport planning traffic engineering and order making alongside infrastructure design services to Westminster City Council for the past nine years.
FM Conway chief executive Michael Conway said: “These maintenance deals demonstrate the scale and quality of our offer and our ability to unlock efficiency savings, drive innovation and recycle materials in our state-of-the-art plants, all key factors in securing the new contracts.”
WSP’s Westminster contract director Chris Dixon said the win was the result of “excellent delivery and client relationships from our existing technical team in Westminster”.
Westminster City Council cabinet member for finance, resources and customer services Melvyn Caplan said: “Westminster’s infrastructure is one of its most valuable assets and it is vital that we continue to maintain it to the highest possible standards while ensuring we secure value for money for our residents.”
