FM Conway appoints new head of rail and secures £4m contract with TfL
FM Conway’s rail division – led by newly appointed head of rail, Wayne Frewen – has secured a construction and civil engineering contract with Transport for London (TfL), expected to be worth in excess of £4 million.
The contract is to provide civil engineering, M&E and fire protection services for a number of strategically located sites across the network to support the Automatic Train Control Signalling Project for London Underground.
Although FM Conway has delivered a number of key rail sector projects in the past, this is the first time that it has been appointed as a tier-one contractor to a large rail operator. It is a major milestone for the company, which is targeting significant and sustained growth in the rail sector while maintaining its position as the leading highways contractor in Greater London.
The appointment of rail expert Wayne Frewen as head of the company’s rail division is a clear statement of intent by FM Conway. Wayne has spent 18 years in the UK rail sector holding senior project lead roles with Transport for London, Morgan Sindall, Crossrail and, latterly, Network Rail.
