The new work sees RWO providing civil and structural design as part of Kier Group’s project delivery team, working alongside award-winning architects, The Harris Partnership, and national building services consultants FHP. The overall project is being managed on behalf of Highways England by property consultants, Carter Jonas.

“This year we have continued to develop our commercial offering and the Highways England success comes at a time when we expect to see even more growth in 2021 as we continue to secure new contracts across the UK.”
