This article reports that Hammonds has completed a 1.5 billion pound contract for new construction, engineering and projects client National Grid Transco (NGT) PLC after winning a competitive pitch. The team, led by London construction head Rupert Cowen, spent 10 months designing four alliance agreements for NGT. Alliance agreements allow a company to work in close collaboration with contractors. Through the Hammonds-designed contracts, NGT will work with Amec, Balfour Beatty, Mc-Nicholas, Morgan Est and Skanska on the replacement of gas mains across the country.
