Network Rail appoints CPC to PPM Framework

Network Rail North West & Central Region has appointed CPC Project Services (CPC) to its £48m Construction Services Framework for Programme and Project Management (PPM) Services.

The 3-5-year framework, to the end of CP7, is designed to provide consultancy support services for enhancement programmes, new station builds, signalling schemes, renewals projects and operational initiatives to align NR’s infrastructure to HS2’s programme of works.

Following a vigorous procurement process which began at the end of 2022, CPC received the highest supplier marks from Network Rail. CPC demonstrated its service excellence across key themes of the tender including best practice methodology & processes (including PACE and SPEED); project & programme management track- record; approach to safety; and sustainability & social value.

CPC has been appointed alongside five other consultancies including Amey, Turner and Townsend, BTTC Group, Currie & Brown and Mott MacDonald.

Nicholas Lloyd, CPC Partner and Head of Transport & Infrastructure said: “We are delighted to be directly engaged with Network Rail on this sort-after framework. This appointment for the North West and Central region builds on our successful partnerships that are already delivering consultancy services within the Network Rail group.

We look forward to collaborating with our fellow appointees on this framework to deliver successful outcomes that support Network Rail’s works programme over the next 3-5 years.”
