Leading infrastructure services company FM Conway has been awarded a five-year term contract with the City of London Corporation to provide highway improvements and maintenance works across the City’s unique public realm.
The contract, valued at an estimated £10m per annum, will run for five years from 1 July 2022, with the option of a further five-year extension. The scope will see FM Conway deliver high-quality construction and maintenance services encompassing a wide range of assets such as carriageways, footways, bridges, street lighting and drainage systems.
The City of London is an historic area of the UK’s capital featuring infrastructural challenges embedded within the culture and heritage. In addition to developing and maintaining public spaces within the square mile, the City of London Corporation is also responsible for over 10,000 acres of urban green spaces.
This new partnership will see FM Conway build upon its success of delivering high-profile projects on London’s historic infrastructure, such as the recent refurbishment of London Bridge. The contract is founded upon a partnership approach and the parties will work together to reinforce the City’s global reputation as a vibrant and sustainable hub in the heart of London.
FM Conway’s Net Zero strategy has been a firm driver of strategic development and the company is leading the way in materials innovation to adapt to the challenges of carbon reduction and climate change.
John Holliday, Contract Director at FM Conway, said: “We are delighted to have been awarded this prestigous opportunity to partner with the City of London Corporation and provide our expertise to the Square Mile. FM Conway has continually shown its desire to innovate and adapt for the future and we are excited to collaborate with the City for a more sustainable London.”
James Tallon, Managing Director at FM Conway, said: “This a pivotal moment in FM Conway’s future and an incredibly exciting partnership for us. The City is steeped in tradition and yet always reinventing itself, and together we will work closely to build on our own sustainability credentials to further establish the City of London as an iconic part of our capital for the future.”
“With our continued drive for smart solutions, our ability to adapt through new technologies and our drive for low carbon alternatives, we will work with the City of London Corporation to deliver an accessible, sustainable and well maintained public realm that respects the City’s unique heritage.”
