Osborne has awarded more than £20m of deals on its £250m Wessex framework with Network Rail.
Call-off contacts worth more than £20m have been agreed with site work under the ‘One Team Wessex’ alliance underway at Yeovil, Wandsworth and several smaller sites.
Osborne was one of four contractors to scoop building, civils and enhancement frameworks on Network Rail’s £1.2bn frameworks on its Anglia, Kent, Sussex and Wessex routes in December.
The collocated One Team Wessex, is based at Waterloo and has 15 staff employed by Network Rail, 20 by Osborne and 10 by its design partner Hyder.
Meanwhile the contractor has confirmed a £38m deal to build new halls of residence and a library as part of the University of Roehampton’s £80m investment programme.
Construction on the 54-acre Wandsworth campus will be carried out over the next three years.
The deal is the focus of a masterplan to modernise facilities with 388 rooms built around two courtyards in the centre of the university’s parkland site and a conference centre to be added.
Subject to planning consent from Wandsworth Council, work is due to start on the four and five storey accommodation buildings in January 2015, with completion in July 2016.
Work on the library will start 12 months later with a similar timespan. Initial enabling work will be carried out this winter for both projects.
