Together, they will have the opportunity to bid for work from TfGM to deliver the 2040 vision; developing and delivering projects that support Greater Manchester’s Right Mix Vision for 50 percent of all journeys to be made by walking, cycling and public transport by 2040, along with its ambition to be net carbon zero by 2038.
The companies have secured a position on 14 lots of the framework. The Framework will run to 2025 and continue Atkins and Faithful+Gould’s long partnership with TfGM and The Greater Manchester District Authorities.
Keeks Wijesinghe, Client Director, Local Transport, North at Atkins, said: “Greater Manchester is a thriving and dynamic region and we’re proud to continue playing our part in its growth. Over the last five years we have supported the development of the City Centre Transport Strategy, and the construction of new transport interchanges. We look forward to continuing to work closely with TfGM to progress their ambition for one million more journeys to be made by sustainable modes.”
Atkins and Faithful+Gould will continue to employ people from the region of all ages, backgrounds and skillsets to bring TfGM the best expertise from people with a real connection to local communities.
Peter Rogers, Director at Faithful+Gould, said: “Our successful reappointment to this framework cements Faithful+Gould’s position as a leading provider of project and cost management services in the North West. We are excited to further build on our longstanding relationship with TfGM and committed to continuing our investment in developing the skills needed within the region as we support Greater Manchester to build back better.”
The appointment builds on Atkins and Faithful+Gould’s growing portfolio of projects in Greater Manchester which includes Manchester Airport City and Manchester Town Hall.
