Solomons Europe has been involved in Sellafield Ltd’s transformational Programme and Project Partners (PPP) initiative since it commenced in May 2019 – a 20-year £7bn framework of megaprojects which aims to transform project delivery, the supply chain and socioeconomic landscape of West Cumbria.
At a strategic level we have been working closely with Sellafield Ltd and the PPP Lot Partners Morgan Sindall Construction & Infrastructure (Civils Construction Management), KBR (Integration) Jacobs (Design and Engineering) and Doosan Babcock (Process Construction Management) on transitioning projects and developing supply chain frameworks based on the innovative principles of Project 13, which aims to boost certainty and productivity in the delivery of infrastructure programmes.
We have also been working directly with Morgan Sindall Construction & Infrastructure and KBR on specific tasks.
For KBR we have been developing and implementing a supply chain Multi-Project Procurement (MPP) model and commercial strategy to procure Key Delivery Partners who will deliver key construction works for the Lot Partners over the next 18 years.
We are also developing and implementing a suite of NEC4® contracts and procedures to support project delivery, collaboration and good contract management across the projects.
Working for Morgan Sindall Construction & Infrastructure, we have been supporting the transition, procurement and management of two “in-flight” projects – the SRP Process Facility project and the RAP project.
Most recently, we supported the contract development and negotiations that led to the award of a £59m contract to Kier, who will deliver a reinforced-concrete structure.
Sellafield Ltd say PPP will “revolutionise” the clean-up of the nuclear site and transform its relationship with the supply chain, much of which is based in West Cumbria.
Solomons is delighted to be involved in the development of this ground-breaking new alliance model, which huge potential to deliver significant social impact and achieve the shared ambition of a more prosperous West Cumbrian economy.
