Contract value:
£700,000
Services:
Building Surveying, Health & Safety Consultancy, Structural & Civil Engineering

Awarded by mini tender, Frankham have worked very closely with London Trams and seconded key staff into the organisation at senior levels.

Frankham was single sourced under the TfL Framework to provide site supervisory staff to carry out traditional site supervisory duties on the track renewal works in Croydon. Work was carried out over Easter Bank Holiday on a 24 hour pattern for ten days.

Frankham provided three Clerk of Works, experienced in working with London Trams and Network Rail, to watch, monitor and record the progress of the Works. As additional value, senior Frankham staff remained on 24hr call to assist or advise in case of any concerns by the Clerk of Works. The later is provided at no additional cost. The Clerk of Works have all had experience on the tools and have personally developed to this supervisory level, but understand the Health & Safety implications, quality that should be obtained and environmental considerations, as well as knowing how and where to find how materials or components should be used and installed. This guarantees a high level of quality and promotes effective communications with the workforce.
