CP5 Southern Multi-Functional Framework Anglia Route

VolkerFitzpatrick, along with our design partner Atkins was awarded the Network Rail southern multi-functional framework – Anglia route (MFF). The collaboration to deliver these works is known as the Anglia Route Collaboration (ARC). This team will deliver a significant number of rail infrastructure improvements and enhancements during the framework.

ARC will deliver platform extensions, station enhancements, new footbridges and upgrades to bridges and embankments along the Anglia route. Individual projects vary in value from £50k up to a maximum of £40m and progress from feasibility to handover.

ARC is underpinned by the principles of BS11000 for collaborative business relationships. Adopting and implementing BS11000 supports and complements the NEC3 framework contract ARC is operating under, providing a meaningful way to measure and continuously improve performance over the duration of the framework.

Early contractor involvement is realising significant benefits for the MFF Anglia Route. £10m of potential efficiencies have already been identified through the implementation of robust design, planning and constructability reviews early in project life cycles.
