Amey awarded two year contract extension with Centro

Support services company Amey has been awarded a two-year extension to its consultancy contract with Centro, the West Midlands Transport Authority.

The company, which is one of two firms bidding for the £2.7bn Birmingham City Council highways maintenance contract, will continue to provide Centro with a range of consultancy services, including project management, planning, feasibility, preliminary and detailed design, public consultation, cost estimating and construction, design and management (CDM) co-ordination.

The contract is managed by Amey’s Birmingham design office and is supported by its consultancy offices across the UK. 

Mel Ewell, chief executive of Amey, said: “We are looking forward to developing our partnership with Centro and working towards its vision of providing a world class public transport system for the West Midlands.

“Our aim is to help clients like Centro maximise the value of their assets, whilst placing a strong emphasis on the economic, social and environmental needs of the local area, by developing new and innovative design ideas.”

Amey has been involved in a number of successful projects in partnership with Centro, including the extension of Chester Road Park & Ride in Sutton Coldfield, which opened six months ahead of schedule and could potentially take 20,000 journeys off the county’s roads every year.

The company is also working on a design for Stourbridge Interchange. This will place a greater focus on sustainability and will incorporate the use of green technology and products, for example by ensuring the optimum use of natural or reduced energy lighting.
