Consultants share £640m of Network Rail design work

9 Jan Network Rail has awarded 82 framework contracts for design services across the country, with a total value of up to £640m.

The design services framework (DSF) consists of four multi-discipline frameworks and 78 single-discipline frameworks. It replaces the former multi-functional design framework.

The new DSF aims to provide access to a wider range of multi-skilled suppliers including small and medium enterprises (SMEs) who form circa 25% of the single discipline suppliers on the DSF.

The work is expected to be worth around £400m for Control Period 6 (2019-2024) and up to £640m if the option to extend the framework into Control Period 7 (2024-2029) is taken up.

Two contracts per region have been awarded for each of the following 10 single disciplines and four multi-discipline frameworks have been awarded at a national level.

  • Buildings & Architecture
  • Civil & Structural
  • Consents & Environment
  • E&P Contact Systems
  • E&P Distribution Design
  • E&P Plant
  • Geotechnical
  • Signalling
  • Telecoms
  • Track

Russell Jackson, Aecom’s head of rail for Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA), said: “The collaborative philosophy embodied in DSF is exciting – it builds on other long term partnerships between Network Rail and the supply chain, including the Rail Systems Alliances and the Managed Services Framework – and will significantly benefit passengers through increasingly efficient and reliable rail design development.

“Having significantly invested in our multi-disciplinary rail capabilities in recent years, Aecom, along with our team of specialist partners, is looking forward to supporting Network Rail and their internal design group, alongside our fellow framework participants in efficiently delivering the CP6 renewals and enhancements workbank.”
