FM Conway secures £56m contract for East Sussex highways work
Leading infrastructure services company FM Conway has won a £56 million contract to deliver highways surfacing work for East Sussex County Council, working as a sub-contractor to Costain/CH2M.
The contract is a seven-year agreement worth c. £8m per annum, which commenced on 1 May 2016. FM Conway is a sub-contractor to the 50:50 joint venture, which was confirmed as the main contractor for East Sussex’s highways services contract earlier this year.
It is the first time that FM Conway will be working on a county council contract, with the majority of the company’s existing surfacing contracts being with the London boroughs. The contract will see FM Conway delivering resurfacing, maintenance and machine patching projects, working closely with the Costain/CH2M JV. The business has also secured a one-year contract to provide gully cleansing across the county.
Mike Betchley, operations director at FM Conway, said: “This is a milestone success for FM Conway, progressing our expansion into new regions with new clients, outside of our core London market. It continues a period of remarkable growth, which has seen us significantly increase both profit and turnover year-on-year over the past decade.
