The DSF is designed to enable access to a wider range of multi-skilled suppliers including SMEs than its predecessor, the Multi-Functional Design Framework. WW+P will be working with Pell Frischmann on the Buildings & Architecture Northwest and Scotland framework contract.
Senior Partner Christian Bocci said: “We are delighted to be appointed to this framework. Our projects include work on some of the most complex major stations in the country and, increasingly, we are planning retail, masterplanning, overstation developments (workplace and housing) and many other complimentary functions linked to the rail asset. We look forward to helping to plan for this new direction in station design across the country with our partner companies group.”
Pell Frischmann Rail Director Jon McPhee said “The DSF is an excellent opportunity for us and our partner companies to deliver the safest projects with best value and highest quality and in the technical areas in which we excel. We have already had our first joint workshops to develop our plans for the next six weeks, aiming to ensure we are ready to engage with Network Rail with aligned interests, goals and practices as soon as they call upon us.”
