GRAHAM to showcase capabilities at Highways UK Exhibition

GRAHAM will exhibit at this year’s Highways UK Exhibition, as part of its continued growth strategy in the highways sector.

Highways UK is for people and organisations involved in the planning, designing, build and operation of the UK's road network. It is not a trade show, but positioned to attract and capture strategic planning and thought leadership at the leading edge of UK road infrastructure development.

GRAHAM will be attending the exhibition, which is taking place on 8 and 9 November at Birmingham’s NEC.

The conference is part exhibition with industry briefing and networking opportunities. The proven and vibrant format is designed to combine thought leadership, insight and information exchange together with the provision of a route to market for vendors.

Leo Martin, Managing Director for GRAHAM Civil Engineering, said: “We are pleased to announce that we will be in attendance at this year’s Highways UK Exhibition, where we will be showcasing our expertise and meeting with our industry peers.”

The event is one of the highlights in the industry calendar and comes at a time when GRAHAM is delivering a large portfolio of highways work.

GRAHAM’s civil engineering team has been involved in some of the most prestigious projects within the UK and Ireland, including the Tennison Road Bridge Replacement for Network Rail, the A138 Chelmer Viaduct for Highways England, and the high-profile M80 Stepps to Haggs Upgrade in central Scotland.

Other recent project wins for GRAHAM include highways upgrade works on the A47, A11, A1 and A12 for Highways England. Also procured through the Highways England CDF Lot 2 framework were the Great Howard Street bridge replacement scheme for Liverpool City Council and the new Travis Brow Link Road - a development which is part of Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council’s £73m Town Centre Access Plan to ease congestion and access in and around the town.

GRAHAM has a very strong civil engineering track record which is underscored by two recent short-listings in the Major Civil Engineering Project of the Year (over £50m) category at the 30th British Construction Industry Awards 2017.
