Highways England

Collaborative Delivery Framework (CDF) Lot 2


Project Overview

Client: Highways England

Programme Value: Total £5bn

Duration: Four years (2014-2018)

The Highways England Collaborative Delivery Framework (CDF) was established to streamline the delivery of the ‘increased capital investment’ proposed for the future growth, development and upgrade of the highways network.

One of five contractors appointed to Lot 2, we were responsible for undertaking medium value construction work (i.e. schemes valued up to £25m). In compliance with the objectives of the Framework, we delivered 70+ individual work programmes as part of a major highways improvement scheme across the east of England network. The projects extended from Peterborough to Norwich, through to Lowestoft via Great Yarmouth.

In the completion of multiple key safety upgrades to roads, surfaces, structures and technology, we generated £3.6m of efficiency savings within the first six months of commencement through the implementation of Lean principles and a robust Collaborative Programme Planning Process.
