We are delighted to confirm that our public sector business group has recently secured a large commission with the JV consortium that is SCS Railways (SKANSKA COSTAIN STRABAG) to undertake large scale condition surveys for the new HS2 Railway line. This is for the first phase of work coming out of Euston London as HS2 heads North towards the Midlands. After a fantastic Watts team effort and lengthy bid period it’s great to have a direct contract now awarded to Watts. This is sizeable achievement and will run for a minimum of 4 years.
Simon Walker (lead director of the public sector business group) said “It’s a fantastic win for the business and a great example of true team spirit across many staff members and exemplifies the skills and determination within Watts to win this substantial contract. The surveys are due to start in Dec and the whole of the National Public sector team have worked very hard to gear up this contract within a short timescale. We are looking forward to supporting SCS railways over the next 4 years and are very proud to be apart of this major National infrastructure project.”
The first instructions are now under way to deliver the client’s requirements from October 2020. Watts looks forward to playing a part in assisting SCS with this nationally important infrastructure project over the years to come and to building the long-term relationship with our client along the way.
