Corrosion Control Services Ltd (CCSL) form part of the Highways Agency Area 9 and 10 Construction Management Framework.
The CMF is a collaborative approach to maintaining £75 billion worth of assets for the Highways Agency in these areas over the next four years. It consists of a number of contractors from different specialist areas who work together to deliver network improvement and maintenance schemes on the all purpose trunk road and motorways in Highways Agency Area 9 and 10.
Following a comprehensive application process, CCSL were selected in partnership with its sister company Freyssinet Ltd as the specialist contractor for cathodic protection. CCSL was assessed on its experience and track record of work, as well as its health and safety, quality and environmental policies and procedures.
The CMF began in January 2010, and the contract will run for four years with a possible two year extension.
The contract is different to the traditional sub contract relationship. It is based on partnering, encouraging open working relationships and providing opportunity to develop and share innovative practices.
