Balfour Beatty has won £450m-worth of new work, across its highways, water, FM, and professional services businesses.
The construction giant has been selected by North East Lincolnshire Council as its regeneration, property, professional and technical services strategic partner for a £250m, 10-year contract, which will involve the provision of highways transportation and planning, asset management and architectural services.
It will provide an integrated service to the Council through Balfour Beatty WorkPlace, the Group's facilities management business, and Parsons Brinckerhoff, Balfour Beatty's professional services business.
Additionally, the Highways Agency has awarded Balfour Beatty, in joint venture, a further one-year extension to its Area 2 Enhanced Managing Agent Contractor (EMAC) contract, covering the strategic motorway and trunk road network in the South West region. The one-year extension is worth approximately £70m and extends the contract to June 2012.
The initial £400m Area 2 EMAC contract was awarded in late 2004 and covers operations, maintenance and improvement schemes for part of the strategic road network, as well as maintenance of technology assets for the whole of the region.
Finally, the firm has secured two water deals. Yorkshire Water has awarded Balfour Beatty a contract for the investigation, design and build of its water networks in the southern area of Yorkshire Water's remit. The contract, which will commence in April 2010 under the AMP5 capital programme, is for five years and is worth £70m, with an option for a five-year extension.
Anglian Water has awarded Balfour Beatty its water networks repair and maintenance, plus developer services contract. The three-year contract, which will commence in April 2010, is worth £60m, with an option for a two-year extension and covers an extensive area from the Humber Bridge to Dunstable, including Lincoln, Grimsby, Grantham, Peterborough, Northampton and Milton Keynes.
Balfour Beatty will work with Anglian Water's network operational staff to improve the network. This is the first repair and maintenance contract that Anglian Water has awarded Balfour Beatty and will enable the two organisations to develop new ways or working which will help drive further efficiencies within the partnership.
