Stantec appointed to National Grid Design and Project Services Framework


Stantec has been appointed to National Grid’s Design and Project Services (DPS) Framework. The appointment includes success on a number of key lots for the delivery of design and project services to support the National Grid RIIO-2 programme.

Stantec has been successful on seven lots including Civils, HVDC, Substations, Multi-disciplinary Design, Onshore Cables, Offshore Cables, and Project Services. The 4-year (plus potential extensions) framework will mainly ensure the delivery of Front End Engineering Design and Project Services.

Stantec will bring its industry wide experience to help drive innovative cost and carbon saving solutions for National Grid. The acquisition of Teshmont by Stantec allows the team to provide extensive specialist HVDC and cabling experience to support National Grid in its aims to reach the UK Government’s increased target of 50GW of offshore wind generation by 2030.

Sophie Lee, Framework Manager, at Stantec, said: “The UK is in the middle of a low carbon energy transformation, and National Grid’s investment of around £1.3bn each year to adapt and develop the transmission network will connect new sources of low carbon and green energy to where it is needed, in our homes and businesses. We look forward to using our role on this framework to support National Grid in meeting its ambitious targets.”

John Ord, Director of Energy and Resources, at Stantec, said: “We’re delighted to be appointed to this framework, the scope of which means our energy specialists can deliver all services from concept to delivery. This is an opportunity to support National Grid as it delivers electricity safely, reliably and efficiently to communities across the UK, all while driving towards a clean energy future.”

Stantec is also on National Grid’s Environmental Services Framework. As a result of this second framework, Stantec can now support delivery of the full project lifecycle for National Grid, from environmental services and front end design, to detailed design and project and programme management.
