Yotta has partnered with FM Conway to deliver a £30 million per annum highway maintenance contract for Westminster City Council.
The eight-year contract, with optional four-year extension, comprises highways maintenance services, including repairs. Elements of the contract provided by Yotta will include high tech road surveys to help Westminster Council inform their asset management process, produce forward works programmes and develop an ongoing maintenance programme.
Yotta will also be implementing their Horizons visualised asset management platform to improve access to and analysis of the collected survey data and other essential highway information.
Described as a framework agreement, neighbouring authorities are also able to call off elements of the Westminster contract with FM Conway including Yotta’s surveying services and software. WSP are third partners on the project supplying design services.
Senior contracts manager at FM Conway Tom McConnell said: “The combination of inspection services and software offered by Yotta completed the package we were able to offer Westminster. Early indications are that by working together using Horizons we can move forward to a position of full asset maintenance in Westminster.”
Working alongside FM Conway, Yotta will complete a number of surveys on behalf of Westminster City Council including a SCRIM (Sideway-force Coefficient Routine Investigation Machine) survey to provide a measurement of wet skidding resistance, a FNS (Footway Network Survey) survey and the production of UKPMS (UK Pavement Management System) datasets. Yotta will also be implementing their Horizons software to help visualise the collected data informing forward works programmes and future maintenance planning.
