Three of the contracts are on council regeneration projects providing a range of public realm and road improvement works in Solihull, Bath and Sheffield. NMC is creating pedestrianised areas with the laying of high quality paving, landscaping and the installation of street furniture and lighting. The projects also include the installation of new traffic signals and signage. NMC is also returning to the University of Liverpool to redevelop and pedestrianise an area of theQuad and provide external paving for new student accommodation.
NMC has also secured the contract for essential maintenance work on the A64 New York road tunnel in Leeds. This will involve strengthening work on the columns, beam repairs and the installation of an upgraded drainage system on the deck of the bridge.
NMC has significant expertise in public realm work and experienced growth in demand during 2011 when the company completed a number of projects including major regeneration projects in Liverpool, Doncaster, Leeds and Wakefield.
Geoff Poyzerexecutive director of Special Projects at NMC, said: “We’re delighted with this latest raft of contract wins for the division. With the vast amount of knowledge and expertise NMC has we are firmly established as one of the leading providers of public realm and road works.”
“With regeneration projects still high on the political agenda we have been pleased to continue to work with a growing number of local councils to deliver on schemes which enhance the environment for residents and visitors to towns and cities across the UK.”
Work on all of the projects is due to start over the next few weeks.
