Acting for Rensham PLC we have let a yard of approx. 1.4 acres on the Sowton Industrial Estate Exeter at £70,000pa to Skanska after Skanska was picked by Devon County Council to deliver highways term maintenance late last year in a deal worth £245m.
Simon White, Operations Director for Skanska, said: “We are delighted to continue our delivery of highways maintenance services for Somerset County Council. This long-term partnership enables us to deliver a responsive and high-quality highways maintenance service for communities and road users across Somerset.
“Using our locally based teams and suppliers, combined with innovative solutions from across our business, we will help maintain and improve roads across the county.”
Skanska was awarded the contract following an extensive procurement process which was carried out jointly with Devon and Plymouth Councils to ensure competitiveness and to put in place opportunities for future collaborative working.
