NEC Users’ Group platinum member National Highways has used NEC to redevelop four highway operations depots in the West Midlands, UK as multi-functional offices. Worth a total of £20.7 million, the four projects were let to contractor Morgan Sindall Construction through the NEC4-based Scape national construction framework. Each project was awarded in November 2022 under an NEC4 Engineering and Construction Contract (ECC) Option A (priced contract with activity schedule). The last of the four sites was completed on time and budget just 10 months later in September 2023. The redeveloped depots are at Bescot in Walsall, Doxey in Stafford, and Strensham and Warndon in Worcestershire, and all are in National Highways’ Area 9. They bring together office and operations staff for the first time, providing a more flexible and collaborative ‘hub and spoke’ approach to office accommodation rather than having all Area 9 office staff based in Birmingham.
