Seddon Construction Ltd will partner with Sellafield Ltd on a new multi-million-pound framework to deliver a building fit-out package.
This is the fourth multi-million-pound framework agreement, worth £175M over the next 17 years, to be awarded by the Programme and Project Partners. The framework comes as part of a major programme of procurements to support the long-term delivery of major decommissioning infrastructure on the Sellafield site.
The framework includes general construction activities such as: internal walls, ceilings, screeding, flooring, painting and joinery.
John Shannon, Divisional Director of Seddon says: “This an excellent appointment for Seddon as a supply chain partner for the Sellafield Site. We pride ourselves on our expertise and have complete faith in our experience to deliver best-of-kind service over the next 17 years.
“This opportunity will ensure that we, along with other stakeholders, contribute to both the community and regional economy positively over this period.”
Head of supply chain, Project and Programme Partners, Peter Hogg added: “We’re very pleased to announce our fourth long-term work partnership. This company has never worked ‘inside the fence’ at Sellafield before and that’s why the Project and Programme Partners model is different.
“It’s providing opportunities to organisations that we have not worked with before, which can provide innovative solutions to meet our long-term needs.
“This collaboration, together with Seddon’s supply chain will ensure enhanced project delivery and increased social impact and economic benefits for our communities.”
This long-standing relationship will bring a wealth of employment opportunities to the area as Seddon seeks to bolster its supply chain in Cumbria, supporting the local economy and providing job security for many.
The framework has been procured under the partners multi project procurement (MPP) model which encourages long-term collaboration throughout the supply chain, enhanced project delivery, and paves the way for greater social and economic impact in the West Cumbria region, with Seddon planning to open an office in West Cumbria.
The MPP model is seeing the appointment of key delivery partners to deliver work packages covering everything from groundworks and general civils to steelwork and cladding.
The partners will work closely with all key delivery partners to deliver Sellafield Ltd’s purpose to create a clean and safe environment for future generations, improve sustainability and ensure better outcomes for the local economy and communities.
