Vinci have been awarded a contract by Sheffield Forgemasters for the building works for a new £400m steel production line. They have been awarded the early works contract and pre-construction services agreement.
A new service road, demolition works and services diversions at Sheffield Forgemasters’ Brightside Lane site will be carried out by Vinci in preparation for a new forging line. This will be the first phase of a wider £400m investment to develop the UK’s largest open-die forging operation.
Vinci Building will initially hande the construction of a new access road onto Sheffield Forgemasters’ site which will include all service diversions and the partial demolition of existing buildings. Chris Winspear, Vinci Building regional director said: “We will also carry out intrusive survey works and provide support with scheduling and risk management, engagement of supply chain and development of costs for the main construction works”.
Vinci Building UK joins Turner & Townsend (cost management/quantity surveyor and principal designer) Tetra Tech (engineering services/lead designer) and JLL (planning consultant) on the project.
