Yorkshire council offers contracts for major civil engineering work
- April 26, 2019

Yorkshire and Humber councils have released information on engineering contracts worth £2billion in new EU adverts.

Yorkshire and Humber public sector construction hub YORhub has released an EU advert offering contracts for major civil engineering projects. The contracts will provide large scale infrastructure works with eight contracts expected to be awarded in total.

Work will include flood protection, construction and maintenance of new highways and bridges, public realm, transport works, and resulting hubs. Clients can choose between either NEC3 or NEC4 types of contracts.

YORhub is managed by 5 lead authorities on behalf of the region, namely East Riding of Yorkshire, Leeds, Sheffield, Rotherham and Scarborough. The new work follows the success of the current YORcivil2 hub that has led to a commitment from local authorities throughout the Yorkshire and Humber region to delivering their large scale infrastructure projects through this new contract.

Tenders are to be returned in early June 20 and are expected to be awarded by September. The advert describes the work as ‘principally civil engineering works, bridges/structure works, highway surfacing works and flood alleviation works, including contractors design when required.’

The contracts will last 48 months with the winners being announced later this year. YORhub has a well-established Supply Chain Engagement Programme that organises project-specific and contract events; at the last event, more than 400 sub-contractors met with 37 YORhub main contractors.
