RWO has hit the road with our latest success, supporting a multi-million pound infrastructure investment by Highways England.
We are providing comprehensive civil and structural engineering services for a number of new depots, each comprising of a 3.5T storage capacity salt-barn together with a separate vehicle maintenance workshop and associated office and welfare facilities. Strategic sites across the country have been selected for each of the new depots to help improve road maintenance and gritting operations over the next five years.
Detailed design work on the first of four depots, each worth approximately £2.5m, is currently being finalised, with onsite construction work for the Hull depot currently on target to start in the second quarter of 2021.
The new work sees us providing civil and structural design as part of Kier Group’s project delivery team, working alongside award-winning architects, The Harris Partnership, and national building services consultants FHP. The overall project is being managed on behalf of Highways England by property consultants, Carter Jonas.
Jamie Corbett, director of structures at RWO’s Leeds office, said: “This is a prestigious project for us, showcasing our engineering capabilities together with the skills and expertise available in the region, to support both major infrastructure and detailed design work.
“This year we have continued to develop our commercial offering and the Highways England success comes at a time when we expect to see even more growth in 2021 as we continue to secure new contracts across the UK.”
Richard Desmond of Kier Specialist Services, said: “RWO’s technical expertise and drive is impressive. They will be a key partner in ensuring the project is delivered on time and to the highest quality standards as the build timeline rolls out over the next 12 months.”
