Grontmij wins Scottish multi-disciplinary deal
Grontmij is to deliver engineering consultancy services north of the border having been selected for a new framework agreement with Scotland Excel, the public sector shared service organisation.
Engineering consultancy Grontmij has secured five lots within the engineering consultancy services framework, enabling them to provide a range of multidisciplinary services in areas which include; roads and structures, transportation and traffic, environmental engineering, drainage and flooding and geotechnical and testing.
The framework, which has a potential annual value of £1M and will run for a minimum of two years, is intended to deliver best value to a wide range of public organisations and local authorities, by facilitating improvements in procurement processes as well as increasing efficiency and collaboration.
John Chubb, Grontmij’s managing director, said: “Our appointment to this framework reinforces our strong presence in Scotland and we look forward to working collaboratively with local authorities and public bodies to deliver sustainable solutions that provide real innovation and value beyond engineering.”
Grontmij’s appointment follows its track record of delivering projects for local authorities, which include land remediation works for the 2014 Commonwealth Games Athletes’ Village, commissioned by Glasgow City Council. It achieved £10M of savings for the client through adopting a sustainable and innovative approach.
