Mott MacDonald also claims spots on two lots

The Environment Agency has revealed the winners of its new £80m consultancy framework.

The framework has been drawn up to support the organisation’s programme of capital investment and improvement works for flood defence schemes.

Mott MacDonald and a consortium made up of Capita and US engineer Black and Veatch secured places on both lots.

Aecom, Arcadis and Turner & Townsend all won places on the higher value lot, while US consultant Jacobs, which is set to buy Wood’s nuclear arm, landed a spot on Lot 1 which is rounded out by North Yorkshire firm JBA.

Lot 1 is worth £27m and is set to provide technical delivery support, while firms on Lot 2 will provide contract, cost and carbon management support worth up to £53m.

Firms working on Lot 1 will be required to carry out services including BIM support and clerk of works responsibilities, while Lot 2 firms will have to carry out tasks including cost and price investigations and risk management.

The framework is set to run for four years.
