Capita Symonds in Highways Agency Framework Win

23 May 2011

Capita Symonds has won a place on three of the four lots for the Highways Agency’s new project support consultancy framework.

The four year framework is designed to improve the HA's service by splitting work into specialist areas rather than letting the framework as one contract. The aim was to make it possible for specialist consultancies to compete for work, identify the skills the agency's teams require to manage project delivery more effectively and avoid duplication.

The suppliers on the framework will provide support services through task orders to enable project milestones to be achieved, and a new performance regime has been developed.

The companies selected for the lots were:

  • Integrated highway engineering and technology design consultancy: Atkins, Halcrow/Hyder JV,
    Jacobs Engineering, Mott MacDonald/Grontmij, Mouchel, URS (Scott Wilson), WSP
  • Traffic technology and network communications design: Arup/Capita Symonds, Atkins, Halcrow/Hyder, Parsons Brinckerhoff/ Pell Frischmann, Serco, WSP
  • Commercial support: Arup/Capita Symonds, Corderoy, Faithful & Gould, Mott Macdonald/Grontmij, Parsons Brinckerhoff
  • Project traffic modelling service: Arup/Capita Symonds, Atkins, Halcrow/Hyder, Jacobs Engineering, Mouchel, URS (Scott Wilson).
