AtkinsRéalis appointed to deliver new utilities framework for England, Wales and Northern Ireland

MONTREAL, June 18, 2024 /CNW/ - AtkinsRéalis Group Inc. (TSX: ATRL), a fully integrated professional services and project management company with offices around the world, has been appointed to deliver projects and professional services for a new major national framework aimed at supporting low-carbon infrastructure and sustainability targets as the UK's emissions reduction deadline for 2030 draws closer.

Publicly-owned procurement specialist SCAPE announced the launch of its new Utilities Consultancy Framework in April, which has been valued at £750 million, and AtkinsRéalis has been appointed as one of two providers on the framework for England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

The framework is designed to help clients unlock infrastructure across a range of sectors, including ports and harbours, rail and metro, nuclear, aviation, water, renewables, energy and telecommunications.

Running for a period of four years, with an option to extend for a further two years, clients will have access to the full suite of professional services from AtkinsRéalis, including strategic advice and consultancy, design and engineering services, project and program management and quantity surveying.

"The decarbonization of our global infrastructure is a fundamental tenet of our approach to reaching carbon net zero targets over the coming years and is central to our purpose of engineering a better future for the planet and its people," said Ian L. Edwards, President and Chief Executive Officer, AtkinsRéalis. "The launch of this new framework from SCAPE is a further opportunity for us to deploy expertise from across our global teams in one seamless offering, to clients in those sectors which shape and operate our worldwide infrastructure. With our market-leading expertise in sectors such as water, transport, energy and nuclear, and many others, we look forward to delivering for those clients across England, Wales and Northern Ireland, which are looking to improve their services, while enhancing low-carbon infrastructure and meeting sustainability goals."

The framework, which has now gone live, has been designed to empower utility sector organizations to shape their utilities programs and projects.

"We look forward to working with clients and delivery partners on this new framework, which gives access to the full range of our multi-disciplinary services, not to mention industry leading, data-driven decarbonization expertise that is simplifying and accelerating the journey to net zero in the built environment," said Richard Robinson, President for UK and Ireland at AtkinsRéalis."  

"Leveraging strategic advice, innovative design, and efficient project management, SCAPE's goal is to help the utility sector enhance the delivery of low-carbon infrastructure projects, from unlocking the value of existing assets to navigating the challenges of realizing future-proofed, innovative schemes," said Mark Robinson, Group Chief Executive for SCAPE. "Ultimately, this translates into improved services, economic growth, and a more sustainable future for communities across the UK."
