Surrey Council and Trowers take to the road

Trowers & Hamlins is to advise Surrey County Council on its £300m highway services contract. The contract will cover the repair and maintenance of the local authority’s road network, and Trowers will work with the council to achieve ‘best value’.
This is the first time that a local authority has used a partnering process for such a large procurement plan.
Partner David Mosey is leading the Trowers team, working with partners Charles Morrish, Emma Burrows and Ian Davis. They will be working with the council’s in-house team, headed by David Varley, with Mair Molteno leading the project.
Mosey said: “Surrey is integrating a whole range of contracts. The value of the contracts is £32m each year.”
Trowers won the work through a tender, but has also advised on a number of similar projects over the last few years. However, this is the first big partnering programme for civil engineering.
