Hankinson Painting Group Revealed as a Framework Winner by Highways England Back

Date published: February 6, 2017

Highways England has awarded Hankinson a place on a framework to carry out upgrade and maintenance work on strategic roads in Cumbria, North Lancashire and the North-east.

The new-style construction works framework is split over 15 lots, covers 10 different specialisms and will run for four years. Hankinson has been awarded the corrosion protection specialism with an indicative spend of £4m over 4 years.

The work, which covers the renewal of roads and bridges and improvement schemes on the road network, will begin on 1 April.

It forms part of Highways England’s new-style asset delivery contract system, which will see the organisation directly manage routine maintenance, renewal and improvement schemes.

Firms on the construction works framework will operate alongside those chosen to deliver design services, and those selected for maintenance and response.

Highways England executive director for commercial and procurement David Poole said: “We are spending record amounts on improving our road network meaning quicker, safer and more reliable journeys for motorists.

“These contracts demonstrate our commitment to increasing capability and understanding within Highways England and bringing Highways England closer to our customers.

“Collaboration with our supply chain is key to our new way of working and we are looking forward to establishing a successful, long-term relationship with the appointed contractors.”

Stephen Hankinson Group Chief Executive said: “This is a fantastic piece of news and a reward for a tremendous amount of hard work by the Hankinson team, not just on the bid but also in demonstrating our competency by providing a first class service for a number of years.”

“The framework offers an exciting opportunity to demonstrate our ability to work on the new style asset delivery contract and to establish a successful long term relationship with Highways England.”
