Eric Wright Civil Engineering appointed to £30bn procurement framework

Eric Wright Civil Engineering, a division of the Eric Wright Group, has been appointed to a £30bn central procurement framework.

The Crown Commercial Services (CCS) Framework for civil engineering works will run for seven years.

The Bamber Bridge based team has also secured a number new contracts totalling more than £8.5m. The firm is currently implementing embankment stabilisation and improvement works to Yeadon Way, the main highway approach into Blackpool, on behalf of the council.

EWCE has also secured contracts with Manchester City Council, the City of Bradford, Cumbria County Council, BeWILDerwood, and is also renovating the Chester's city wall, restoring the Northgate Steps.

Diane Bourne, managing director, said: “We are delivering key infrastructure improvements right across the region and are extremely proud to be working on so many important projects. We are building our team and actively recruiting the best engineering professionals as the business grows and to help us deliver this work over the coming months.”

“The CSS focus is on delivering continuous, high-quality improvement and it is testament to the strength and ability of our team that Eric Wright has been appointed to one of the country’s most important and valuable frameworks. It reinforces our ability to deliver complex engineering solutions for some of the country’s most significant infrastructure projects.”
