Winvic Construction Ltd, a leading main contractor that specialises in the design and delivery of multi-sector construction and civil engineering projects, has won a new contract with Lincolnshire County Council to deliver highways works across the county.
The ‘General Works’ Lot awarded to Winvic is for schemes involving the creation of new infrastructure assets as well as infrastructure improvements. Works to be undertaken by Winvic on A and B class roads in Lincolnshire are likely to include the construction of roundabouts, major highways widening or dualling, bridge construction and service diversions and installation as well as the installation of drainage and street lighting.
Rob Cook, Winvic’s Civils and Infrastructure Director, commented: “I’d like to thank our team for working hard throughout the tender process on this Framework and Lincolnshire County Council team for recognising that Winvic has the drive, skills and focus on innovation to successfully and safely deliver schemes within the Framework. We are confident that our experience with the creation of new highways infrastructure and improvement works of a similar nature and our collaborative, one-team approach will lead us to exceeding the council’s expectations.”
The news comes after Winvic won two Lot contracts across four regions within National Highways’ (NH) new Scheme Delivery Framework (SDF) last year. With this second Framework win, Winvic will be helping to keep Lincolnshire roads running safely and smoothly as well as a number of England’s major A roads and motorways.
Cook continued: “Winvic is known as the county’s top industrial warehouse specialist, but that also means it has been delivering highways and infrastructure works associated with large UK distribution parks for its twenty-year history. Now – I’m delighted to say – we are also known for our track record of successfully completing major highways, civils and infrastructure works and our strong relationship with National Highways. This Lincolnshire highways contract win is another piece of evidence that we’re Doing It Right.”
Tom Gifford, Client and Contract Manager from Lincolnshire County Council, added: “We are delighted to welcome Winvic onto our General Works framework Lot and look forward to working closely with the Winvic team on new projects in the future.”
