Morgan Sindall features prominently in a list of contractors appointed to a new civil engineering framework set to account for as much as £1.5 billion of infrastructure development in the north east of England.

The four-year framework, governed by the North East Procurement Organisation (NEPO) and procured by Sunderland City Council, aims to achieve significant cost savings on Local Authority infrastructure and civil engineering projects across the region through the appointment of 23 contractors.

Morgan Sindall was the highest scoring contractor across the three categories to which it’s been appointed on the framework. These include Infrastructure (a broad range of works such as highway maintenance, drainage and public realm jobs), Highways (involving construction of new highways) and Highways Structures (such as culverts, over bridges, underpasses and demolitions). The company has won two value ranges in each category and is eligible to bid for contracts ranging from £1 million to over £5 million.

Bill Gifford, Morgan Sindall’s Managing Director of Transport, said: “We’re thrilled at achieving such widespread wins across this important framework. We have a proud history of delivering infrastructure upgrades for the travelling public across the UK and are excited at the prospect of employing our expertise here in the north east.”
