ECS adds large MEICA maintenance framework to its EA portfolio
ECS Engineering Services has been appointed as a framework contractor responsible for delivering large MEICA maintenance contracts on behalf of the Environment Agency (EA) in the South-east. The award is the result of an open bidding process, which invited organisations to apply for framework contracts for up to four years in duration.
This latest framework contract is to deliver MEICA services and turnkey project works to the EA’s assets in this region.
ECS actively targeted this framework agreement, specifically the larger project work due to its large capacity for fabrication and site engineering. The company already maintains an active workforce in the area due to its Minor Works framework with the EA. The award of this framework allows ECS to further increase its site presence in support of one of its major clients.
Jamie Wesley, commercial manager for ECS, said: “We have been working for the Environment Agency for over 15 years, delivering mechanical and electrical maintenance projects for a whole range of water control and waterway structures. We have a lot of experience and a great project track record. Our combined assets of expert designers, in-house fabrication facilities and experienced site engineers enable us to deliver larger refurbishment projects safely and on time.”
The EA encourages small and medium enterprises (SMEs) to become involved in delivering these contracts, either directly or as a sub-contractor. By fulfilling this important role, companies such as ECS as a medium size business supports the government’s target of achieving at least 25% of the framework spend with SMEs.
