SNC-Lavalin Group’s Atkins has been appointed to all nine lots on the third generation of the Scotland Excel Engineering and Technical Consultancy Framework. The four-year framework provides all 32 Scottish local authorities, plus Transport Scotland, with access to specialist services covering road and structures, transportation and traffic, environmental engineering, land surveying, drainage and flooding, geo environmental and geotechnical, coastal and maritime, master planning, and project and commercial management.

Thirty-one suppliers were appointed to the framework, which is expected to see spend of around GBP 18 million a year, with Atkins being one of only four to have achieved a place on every lot. All suppliers have pledged to offer local community benefits, based on council spend thresholds, for the lifetime of the framework.
This is the third time Atkins has been awarded a place on Scotland Excel’s Engineering and Technical Consultancy framework.
