BAM Nuttall has renewed a framework partnership which has seen drainage specialist Lanes Group plc deliver services for scores of projects on behalf of the leading civil engineering contractor.
Lanes Group National Business Development Manager Andy Botfield and James Lees, Head of Supply Chain at BAM Nuttall, signed documents to renew the agreement which has already lasted nine years.
In that time, Lanes drainage teams have worked on projects for BAM Nuttall and its associated companies across the UK in many different sectors, including highways, nuclear energy, rail, and construction.
Andy Botfield said: “We’re proud of what we’ve contributed on behalf of BAM Nuttall for many major projects, including development of infrastructure for the Olympic Park in London.
“We’re very pleased that our partnership is continuing. BAM Nuttall champions a transparent, fair and constructive approach to doing business that is appreciated by our teams across the country.”
James Lees said: “Our relationship with Lanes is based on shared values and standards which include a strong focus on health and safety, environmental protection and innovation.
“Lanes has demonstrated consistently high performance, shared learning and excellent communication, so we know we’re always supported, and the drainage work we need doing will get done.”
The renewed rolling 12-month agreement ensures Lanes teams at 22 depots across the UK are ready to respond seamlessly to BAM Nuttall’s service requirements.
In a recent project, drainage engineers from the Lanes East London depot used innovative pillow packer technology to install point liners to repair a culvert for BAM Nuttall at a major new wildlife reserve.
BAM Nuttall was the main contractor responsible for creating the 670-hectare Wallasea Island Wild Coast in Essex, the largest coastal habitat creation of its kind in Europe.
Other services regularly delivered by Lanes for BAM Nuttall include rail track drainage cleaning and renewal, CCTV drainage surveys, sewer cleaning, and pipe rehabilitation, including lining.
